Archie is an Arabian cross pony from a lesson barn in New Jersey. His previous experience has made his transition to being a therapy horse seamless. His wit and love of affection keep the staff at Pegasus on their toes. Archie’s riders love how their pony keeps lessons interesting.
Big Mac is a miniature horse who was purchased for our riders, so they may love and groom a horse that does not tower above them. Big Mac is great to introduce to anyone who may be afraid of our larger horses. He also assists in our unmounted Equine Facilitated Learning program with participants who are unable to ambulate while leading. Big Mac is an ambassador for the program and goes to multiple events throughout the year.
Bleu is a miniature horse who is the perfect best friend for Big Mac! With a big heart and an impressively calm manner, Bleu is embracing his life as a therapy horse at Pegasus. He is quick to learn, inquisitive to engage our riders, and has endless amounts of patience being groomed, led and loved on. We are excited for Bleu to join Big Mac as an ambassador for our program.
Clyde is a pony, who is the heart of our program and is often the first pony our clients ever ride. Performing admirably with therapy pads as well as under saddle, he has aided many riders in overcoming their fears and moving on to success in our program. Clyde was also the Inaugural Pennsylvania National Horse Show Therapy Horse of the Year in 2016.
Ellie was previously a lesson horse based out of New Jersey and has fully embraced her new career as a therapy horse. She is a determined partner and responds well to instruction. Ellie’s attentive nature makes it easy for program participants to connect with her.
Forrest is a Quarter horse gelding who is on free lease to us from Taylor Hennigan who also graciously free leases one of our other therapy horses, Molly, to us. Although he is on the younger side, he has had a very successful show career, celebrating multiple successes as top nine at the All American Quarter Horse Congress, as well as top-five at the AQHA Novice Championship. We are very excited to have such a well seasoned all-around horse in our program!
Hummer is a Standardbred gelding who was adopted from the Standardbred Retirement Foundation in New Jersey. Although he never had a racing career he has done a lot of his years allowing him to excel in the therapy horse life. Hummer loves all of the attention he receives getting ready for lessons and in the arena during his lessons. He aims to please in everything that he does and truly loves his job here!
John is a draft cross who came to Pegasus from a barn in New York. His experience in dressage and showing make him a great addition to our program. He exudes the best qualities of a therapeutic horse; he is calm, friendly, steady, and quiet. His trustworthy nature allows our clients to ride with confidence.
Marvel came to us from a local lesson barn. He is reliable, gentle and calm. He prefers to take things slow and easy, which makes him the perfect therapy horse. Marvel loves the water and his favorite thing to do is splash in the creek on a hot summer day! Marvel has helped his riders compete in several horse shows and assisted his rider to win Reserve Grand Champion at the Devon Horse show in 2018.
Molly is a paint mare, that comes to Pegasus via free lease and has extensive experience in horse shows. Molly has won an APHA Congress title and is a double registered mare. Her sweet temperament and patience make Molly uniquely fit our Pegasus herd.
Oro is a Quarter Horse who is very easy going and mellow. He previously worked at a local school helping students learn basic horsemanship skills. Oro loves to spend his free time roaming our Pegasus pastures with his friends. When he is in the barn, you can count on him to help our new volunteers learn how to groom horses. He is also the perfect gentleman in lessons!
Paxton is a draft cross gelding. His inquisitive and gentle manner makes him a perfect equine staff member for our therapeutic riding program. Previously trained for eventing, he seems to enjoy the more laid back pace of our Pegasus lesson program. Due to his easy-going nature, Paxton easily accommodates our riders in therapy pads. Paxton’s show experience allows him to be an excellent equine partner for our horse show team.
Rafino is a Dutch Warmblood who is on free lease to us from Betsy Rice. Before coming to Pegasus, Rafino spent his time competing on the USEF show circuit in the 1.20m and 1.30m jumping classes. Having all this previous show experience we are excited about what our riders will accomplish with him! With a puppy dog personality, he has found a spot here at Pegasus, receiving a lot of love and attention.
Sergio is a Haflinger and Belgian Cross Breed named in honor of a special rider who passed away. He was purchased for the program and since then has become a key member of the team, working under saddle and in equine-assisted therapy. A sturdy guy with a big personality, he has proven himself to be the ideal therapy horse.
Squirt is a pony who was donated to Pegasus by a family that rescues animals. They saved Squirt’s life by purchasing the sickly 3-month-old pony and nursed him back to health. When Squirt turned 3 years old, it was time to find him a job! He is now one of our star ponies for the weekly lesson program. Squirt always looks forward to greeting his riders before and after their lessons.
Sunny is a Palomino gelding who comes to us from a reining background. He is an important member of our equine staff, and his training makes him a great horse under saddle who is sensitive and responsive to his riders’ cues. Sunny has a bright and inquisitive background.
