Pegasus Therapeutic Riding Inc. is holding an open house from 4 to 6 p.m. May 22 at Ox Ridge Riding & Racquet Club, 512 Middlesex Road, Darien. The open house will focus on the organization’s therapeutic horsemanship programs, volunteer opportunities and other ways to get involved.

Pegasus was created in the fall of 1974, when a small group of equestrian women began exploring the effectiveness of therapeutic riding, according to the organization’s website. In September 1975, the first Pegasus therapeutic riding sessions began at Ox Ridge Hunt Club. The PATH-certified instructors provide equine-assisted services to people with special needs and challenges, including disadvantaged youth, trauma survivors, veterans, first responders and adults with developmental disabilities.
