“WINGS OVER PEGASUS,” our annual airplane extravaganza, will be Saturday, April 28th to coincide with The Association for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) Help A Horse Day, a nationwide celebration. We are pulling out all the stops and are counting on YOU to make this day a huge success and help our horses!
The day will be a casual, carnival atmosphere with an airshow by "The Raptor", pony rides, airplanes, skydivers, fun horse-themed games, arts and crafts. There's something for every member of the family. Guests can visit with the Pegasus trainers and staff to meet, pet, finger-paint, and learn about the horses and get information regarding adoption and sponsorship opportunities. The SPCA of East Texas will be on-site with a variety of adoptable dogs.
Free airplane rides for kids 8-17!*

Horse neglect, abuse and abandonment are prevalent and serious problems in east Texas, over the past nine years, The Pegasus Project has assisted, rescued, rehabilitated, retrained and re-homed hundreds of mistreated horses, donkeys, and mules. In celebration of our mission, the public is invited to come enjoy the day and help with this very worthy cause.
