Lucas's Story

Meet Lucas...

 

Lucas is eight years old and has been riding at Pegasus Farm for three years.  He’s not
shy and will tell you his favorite horse is Thor. Thor is our oldest horse on the farm at 29,
but continues to love working with the kiddos.

Through his riding, Lucas has grown physically stronger. When he started at Pegasus he would occasionally need a walker behind him for support and now he no longer needs this walker. He has also built up his core strength as he sits up tall on Thor. 

Although getting on Thor was scary at first, Lucas has enough confidence to now help put Thor back in his stall. As we say, he helps put him to bed!

His mom will say it is his relationship with volunteer Carl that has been the turning
point for Lucas. Carl plays the harmonica. It was close to Christmas and after weeks of
learning about the instrument, what did Lucas ask for for Christmas? The two now have
a harmonica lesson each week after Lucas’s riding lesson.
