Annual Horse Show

SAVE THE DATE: August 19, 2017

For fourteen years running, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northeast Ohio has sponsored the ribbons and shirts for our annual student horse show. Participants in our “Take Flight” equestrian program show off their horsemanship and equestrian skills, including riding and carriage driving to experience the pride that goes with having risen above a challenge or mastering a new skill.

2016 update:  It never ceases to amaze us here at Pegasus that while we are preparing for the biggest event of the year we busy ourselves with scrubbing the tack, trimming the horses, cleaning every corner, beautifying the property, practicing the events; all the while keeping an eye on the one thing we cannot control ~ the weather. But each year as the big day dawns, the weather is incredibly perfect! We are truly blessed! The event consisted of 109 exhibitors, 23 horses, 30 staff, over 80 volunteers, and many friends and family. The show ended with a wonderful awards ceremony; we all laughed and cried at the excitement of each exhibitor as they walked, and sometimes ran, up to the awards table to receive their ribbons and trophies!  This year’s winner of “Therapy Horse of the Year” was Bella. She was joined in the parade by Penny Pinch winners Nicholas, Gillyn, and Shazaam; 1st 2nd & 3rd place respectively.

We say it every year and every year it is true; this is pay day for the staff here at Pegasus. A big thank you to all of our students and families for allowing us to share your lives and an enormous thank you to Northeast Ohio Ronald McDonald House Charites for continuing to sponsor this incredible event for 16 years.!
