For the fifth year in a row, to assist with its efforts to protect horses, The Pegasus Project will be hosting Wings Over Pegasus, an airplane and equine extravaganza. The event is scheduled 10am-3pm Saturday, April 20th at the 95-acre Pegasus Ranch, located at 7111 FM 2339 in Murchison.

Wings Over Pegasus features a variety of airplanes and helicopters. The Piney Woods Experimental Aircraft Association/Young Eagles Program will offer free airplane rides to kids between the ages of 8 and 17. The event will have a casual, carnival atmosphere featuring “The Raptor” airshow, skydivers, face-painting, fun horse games, pony rides, an Easter egg hunt, gourmet food trucks, arts and crafts, and competitions for the whole family. There will be a silent auction and a raffle drawing for two roundtrip tickets on Southwest Airlines. Guests can enjoy photo opportunities with a variety of aircraft, Pegasus horses, and “Pegasito,” the winged-donkey in his kissing booth.

The Pegasus rescue horses are available to meet, pet, and finger-paint. Guests can visit with the Pegasus trainers and staff to 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.

Parking is $10/vehicle. Food, refreshments, and participation in games are available for purchase.

This event is held to raise awareness about the lifesaving work The Pegasus Project does year-round to care for at-risk horses in this community. The Pegasus Project was founded in 2009 to combat the prevalent and serious problem of horse neglect, abuse, and abandonment in East Texas; and over the past ten years it has rescued, rehabilitated, retrained, and re-homed hundreds of mistreated horses, donkeys, and mules.

The public is invited to come enjoy the day and help with this very worthy cause. All proceeds benefit the horses of The Pegasus Project.
