Michael Milton recently helped open the official Pegasus Riding for the
Disabled Open Day which raised more than $16,000.
Pegasus report it was the best turnout yet, with more than 1,800
people joining in the fun and festivities.
Executive Officer, Jane Thompson, was delighted the Canberra community
supported the day so strongly.
"Our attendance numbers were up 33 percent from last year's event."
"Funds raised will provide close to one hundred horse-facilitated
therapy sessions to riders with a disability in the region, " said
Milton, a Pegasus Ambassador.
In a quirky turn of events, the Pegasus horse quite literally took to the
skies on the day. Pegasus balloons from the event were found over 650km
away near Quirindi NSW (2 hours north-west of Newcastle) on Monday
afternoon, where they came to rest in a farmer's paddock.
