For those who are dedicated “horse people”, they are intuitive, sensitive and therapeutic companions. Australian poet Pam Brown said that “horses lend us the wings we miss..“So when they’re mistreated, it’s heartbreaking.

Fortunately, there is a group of caring people in East Texas whose mission is to give those wings back to horses that have been abused or neglected.The Pegasus project is a non-profit group located on 95 beautiful acres near Ben Wheeler.

The founders, Allyson and Mike DeCanio, as well as the ensemble Pegasus team, are committed to working alongside other animal welfare organizations, responding to complaints of horse cruelty, investigating and rescuing horses in need. The horses are then given rest and a sanctuary where they are brought back to health, retrained as needed and prepared to find their forever home.
