Pegasus lived on Helicon and was fed by the Muses in winter when snow covered the ground. He often flew south to the Isthmus of Corinth to drink at a favorite spring. It was there that the wild winged horse was captured with a golden bridle suppplied to Bellerophon by Athene. But Bellerophon incurred the wrath of Zeus by riding through the air on Pegasus dressed in crown and robes. Zeus cursed the impudent mortal and had Hera send a gadfly to sting Pegasus under the tail, who reared and sent Bellerophon tumbling to earth a half of mile down. After that, his fate was to wander about the earth lame, poor and deserted by his friends. But Zeus caught Pegasus and used him as a pack-horse to carry thunderbolts.
