Pegasus Therapeutic Riding Academy, Inc.
Clyde is a pony cross that has been an extraordinary herd member at Pegasus TRA for the past 22 years. Over the many years Clyde has been with Pegasus he has been able to serve a wide array of clients from beginner riders through those that independently walk, trot, canter. At 28 years old Clyde is one herd member that has begun to slow down a bit and enjoys taking first time riders in therapy pads safely around the arena for their lesson. Whether it be riders who are scared or those very excited,Clyde's personality ensures every rider that gets off him leaves with a big smile on their face. Being a lesson horse for 22 years has been both physically and mentally taxing for a horse like him. In order to keep Clyde at his peak performance ability he is given monthly Adequan injections. Also suffering from Equine Metabolic Syndrome and Insulin Resistance, Clyde regularly receives Prascend and Thyro-L to ensure healthy metabolic function. In order to ensure future years of success from Clyde to the Pegasus TRA program he would benefit greatly from Platinum Performance products that aid in joint health, bone health, skin & coat, weight management, and hoof care.
