What Makes Pegasus Riding Academy Different?
We believe that every child who could benefit from the healing power of horses should be able to do so in an environment that is professional and nurturing, regardless of race or creed in the Savannah area.
We could not provide riding for the disabled without the help of our volunteers. Every disabled child on a horse needs three volunteers in addition to the instructor, one Horse Leader to control the horse and two side-walkers to ensure the safety of the rider.
Provide equine assisted activities for individuals in Savannah with physical, mental or emotional disabilities. Summer adventure sessions for our special children and their able-bodied siblings start on May 22nd and run on a weekly basis from then, with the last session starting on July 10th.
Our horses are carefully chosen for their calm temperament and their ability to bond is one reason why therapeutic riding works so well.

Who we serve
Pegasus Riding Academy serves participants of all ages and with a range of physical, emotional, behavioral and cognitive challenges. Currently our programming focuses on youth, but as we grow our goal is to develop more programming to serve Wounded Warriors and Seniors as well. Currently, Pegasus provides Therapeutic Horseback Riding for riders who have been diagnosed with a wide range of disabilities, including Autism Spectrum Disorder, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, ADHD, Sensory Integration Disorder, Angelman Syndrome, vision and hearing impairments, traumatic brain injury, PTSD, and many others. Our tax status limits the amount of riding we can offer to people who are not disabled, however we can usually accommodate requests for example to allow an able-bodied sibling to ride with a disabled person. Please speak to Peggi if you are in this situation.
