Pegasus Rising’s Wine & Feed fundraiser


Pegasus Rising’s third annual Wine & Feed fundraising event was held Sept. 22 in La Jolla. The event included a silent auction, great wine, food and more.

Pegasus Rising is a 501(c)(3) non profit tax exempt organization that partners a herd of rescued horses with humans for healing at the privately owned Valenti Ranch located in Rancho Santa Fe.

Pegasus Rising’s Equine Assisted Experiential Health Therapy Program is offered free of charge to veterans of all eras (active duty or retired) and/or their caregiver families. The program is specifically designed to provide assistance to U.S. military personnel in readjusting back into their family and civilian lives and is suitable for those with emotional trauma, such as veterans diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and/or traumatic brain injury. The program also includes couples and/or family sessions for military families to address family-based issues that have arisen since their loved ones have returned from overseas duty.
