We will collect any donations you bring to our meetings or drop off at our home.  We make periodic trips out to the farm with your gifts.  You are also welcome to drop stuff

 I'd also like to point out that they have a marvelous little shop featuring bulk food items and some handmade craft items as well.  Worth stopping by! These are wonderful folks who provide a super place for those less abled and for the veterans who have helped keep our country safe.  They are very worthy of any assistance we can give to them in their projects.

and why do we support it?

Pegasus Farm has been a premier therapeutic riding center in Northeast Ohio since 1985. Research shows that horseback riding has exceptional physical and psychological benefits which enable riders with disabilities to achieve control and mobility they may not otherwise experience.

With the help of some very special horses and dedicated volunteers and staff, Pegasus Farm program participants become well-rounded, self-confident individuals.  Pegasus Farm is dedicated to maximizing the potential of handicapped children and adults.

The Scottish American Society has been directing profits from our yearly Celtic Beltane Festival to Pegasus for several years.  We believe it is a worthwhile cause, it is near the site of the festival at Maize Valley Winery, and some of our Highland Athletes are closely connected to Pegasus.  Aside from all that, there has historically been a close connection between the Celts and their horses. 



Volunteers are the life blood of any charitable endeavor.  They help make Pegasus a reality for those who are ability challenged.  Riders count on volunteers for assistance and social interaction.  This is vital to the fulfillment of their goals and for the achievements realized in this therapeutic environment.
There is, of course, no financial reward for volunteering at Pegasus.  But there are priceless and bountiful hugs and smiles.  Volunteers at Pegasus are any age - some into their 90's and still helping out.
