Quick Win project No. 9: Pegasus Riding for the Disabled
Pegasus is a not-for-profit community organisation in ACT that provides equestrian activities for people with disabilities. Pegasus brings horses and people together to achieve their potential. Apart from being fun, horse riding helps to improve co-ordination, balance, muscle development and fitness. It also boosts personal confidence, self-esteem, communication skills, leadership and trust.
See what has been achieved via the CORENA loan to Pegasus so far
Note: The ‘At subsequent projects’ figures should be a bit higher than shown below. This is because we temporarily used some Big Win funds to help fund some of our early Quick Win projects, and when we later repaid that amount to the Big Win fund we used two loan repayments from Pegasus ($640) to help pay that back. That money is now achieving reductions in carbon emissions via Big Win projects, but that benefit is not reflected in the table shown below.
* Since the amount of CO2 avoided is highly dependent on the fuel source used for local grid electricity, and since subsequent CORENA projects (partly funded by loan repayments from this one) are in different locations and began at various times when different carbon intensity figures applied, we have used 1MWh = 1 tonne as a very rough approximation across all projects.
