Pegasus Riders Show Off Their Skills

Posted: Updated:
YAKIMA, Wash.--People with physical and emotional special needs showed off their equestrian skills Saturday.
 
It's the annual Pegasus Rider's Showcase. The Pegasus Project is a non-profit organization that provides horse back riding lessons for people with things like Cerebral Palsy or Autism.
 
Event coordinator, Brooke Hamilton, said the organization currently has around 40 riders. She said it's a humbling experience to watch these riders grow.
 
"We have one of our mothers who came and said that even the teachers at school were noticing that her daughter was more confident, was talking more in class, more engaged with the other students and she gave all the credit to Pegasus," said Hamilton.
 
Hamilton said the non-profit is considering expanding their hours and adding riders. If you're interested, you can find their contact information at pegasusrides.com
