“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.

If you are unable to attend, please consider supporting the horses by buying raffle tickets or simply making a donation!
