Who We Serve

Our PATH-certified instructors, physical and occupational therapists, and licensed educators provide equine-assisted activities and therapies to people with special needs (i.e., individuals with physical, developmental and cognitive disabilities) and individuals at risk. Pegasus also is developing an equine-assisted program for military veterans.

Special-needs diagnoses include, but are not limited to: cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain injury, visual and hearing impairment, Down syndrome, learning disabilities, language deficiencies, autism, attention deficit disorder (ADD), and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Individuals at risk include, but are not limited to: disadvantaged youth, adults with developmental disabilities, and trauma survivors.

Students are currently accepted as young as four years old. While the majority of our students are under the age of 18, we also serve adults.
