The Pegasus Project Hosts Wings Over Pegasus on April 8th

MURCHISON, TX – We are back live in 2023! The Pegasus Project Horse Rescue will host Wings Over Pegasus, an airplane and equine extravaganza. The event is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 8th at the 95-acre Pegasus Ranch, located at 7111 FM 2339 in Murchison. The airshow starts promptly at 1pm.

Wings Over Pegasus features a variety of skydivers, airplanes and helicopters. The breath-taking airshow includes performances by Leland Kracher in a Christen Eagle, Kate Kyer in a Pitts Special, Jeremy Holt in the “Pegasus,” a T-28 from the Trojan Phlyers & Racing Team, and Stephen Covington in the “Raptor.”  Expect a casual, family-friendly atmosphere featuring face-painting, the Easter Bunny, an Easter egg hunt, gourmet food trucks, a raffle drawing for two roundtrip tickets on Southwest Airlines, a tennis ball toss contest and a flour bomb competition. 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 $20/vehicle. Pegasus merchandise, food, refreshments, raffle tickets and participation in games are available for purchase. Sponsors of the event enjoy free parking, premier viewing of the airshow, VIP tent with lunch catered by Montez Brothers, and many other perks!

“Wings Over Pegasus 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 fantastic rescue horses in need of loving homes. The cool airplanes and amazing airshow attract a wide variety of people to the ranch where they can personally connect to the magic of Pegasus.”

This event is to raise awareness about the lifesaving work The Pegasus Project does year-round to care for neglected horses in this community. Because horse neglect, abuse and abandonment in East Texas is a prevalent and serious problem, The Pegasus Project was founded in 2010, and over the past thirteen years has rescued, rehabilitated, retrained and rehomed 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.
