"The ASPCA Help A Horse Day contest is a wonderful opportunity for our team to welcome the residents of East Texas onto our ranch to help spread awareness about at-risk horses in our community," said Allyson DeCanio, President of The Pegasus Project. "The day is a celebration of our wonderful rescue horses in need of loving homes. The cool airplanes attract a wide variety of people to the ranch where they can personally connect to the magic of Pegasus."

Parking is $10/car. Food from gourmet food trucks, refreshments, and participation in games are available for purchase.

Because horse neglect, abuse and abandonment in East Texas are prevalent and serious problems, The Pegasus Project's mission is to educate the community about the need for more action. Pegasus was founded in 2009, and over the past nine years has rescued, rehabilitated, retrained and re-homed hundreds of mistreated horses, donkeys, and mules. The public is invited to come enjoy the day, learn about this life-saving work, and help with this very worthy cause. All proceeds benefit the horses of The Pegasus Project.
