The Mission of Pegasus Special Riders Inc. is to facilitate healing and empowerment in the lives of physically, mentally and/or emotionally challenged individuals through a variety of equine assisted therapies.
What a way to start the year! All that SNOW. Then all that RAIN! Wow! Mother Nature sure gave us what we asked for and more! I hope everyone made it through the flooding with minimal damage. With one session under our belts it should be smooth sailing now. Hopefully everyone is ready for warmer weather and sunshine. I know I am! We have lots of fun planned for this summer. With the Garage Sale in May, Picnic in June featuring the opening of our Sensory Trail, our third Poker Run in July, and everyone’s favorite the Horseshoe Ball in October (with fun new details coming soon on that event) this should be one exciting year. I am glad to see all the Riders and Parents, and the new Riders starting next session. Hopefully with the turn in the weather it will be on a more regular basis. So to steal the words of or Riders and Wayne, WALK ON into summer. This is going to be a GREAT year!
