2015 Pegasus Horse Show a Success

June 17, 2015

Cheered on by staff, volunteers, family and friends, more than 60 Pegasus students demonstrated their riding and horsemanship skills at the 34th Annual Pegasus Horse Show on Sunday, May 31, 2015.

Grouped in classes of three to six athletes, participants showed off several of the skills they have been practicing during weekly lessons at one of our four chapters in Fairfield, Putnam and Westchester counties. In celebration of our Ruby Anniversary, this year’s athletes won a special “40 Years Pegasus Proud” ribbon for accomplishing a particular horsemanship skill exceptionally well.

The event was held at our main equestrian center, Pegasus Farm in Brewster, N.Y., and featured 13 riding and leading classes, special awards, arts & crafts and other family-friendly activities. The Pegasus Horse Show is also our primary annual fundraising event, and all charitable contributions will benefit the more than 300 participants served by our programs each year.

This year's special award winners included:
Ethan W. and Kate R. - Robert M. Stein Challenge Trophy for Outstanding Rider of the Year
Erik Swain - The Pat Bugg Award for Special Service and Dedication to Pegasus
Brian M. - The Michele Arnhold Independent Rider Award
Talbot C. - The Ann Pinkerton Award for Adult Rider of the Year
Vicky Skouras - The Peggy and Bill Larned Award for Most Helpful Volunteer
Anabeth Bostrup - The Seth A. Armen Junior Volunteer Award
Mr. Blue - The Libby Bartnick Award for Pegasus Therapy Horse of the Year

Congratulations to our special award winners and ALL our Pegasus participants for a job very well done, and thank you to everyone who helped make the day so special for them!
