9. Pegasus Riding for the Disabled, ACT

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.

Project story…

This proved to be a very popular project due to strong community regard for Pegasus. It was fully funded in just 11 days entirely from donations, and was the first to be funded without any assistance from loan repayments (except for our first project of course).

Thanks are due to Embark for matching contributions from new donors $ for $, and to SolarHub Canberra for a generous 15% discount on the solar installation.

* The CO2 figures are very approximate. The subsequent projects assisted by funds originally donated to this project have been and continue to be implemented at widely different places and times at which different carbon intensity factors apply.

The Pegasus project is now fully funded – Thank you!
