Sara Hagen is a high school student at West High in Oshkosh. She and her sister, Kate, below are an important part of the Pegasus Team. The work hard to keep the horses in shape, well-loved and accustomed to all sorts of handling. They groom, ride and desensitize the horses regularly - using beach balls, crawling under, sliding off both sides and the back end, etc. etc.....all this keeps the Pegasus Horses friendly and accommodating to the participants in seminars. The team also makes sure they get plenty of being-a-horse-time and take them on trails whenever possible. These young women are highly skilled at assisting with the horses in Pegasus programs because they are alert and observant to even subtle changes in the horses' behavior. These observations cue participants to look for the potential meaning of those behavior changes to the participants' own behavior.
Sara is great with her riding students and makes sure they focus on their own growth as leaders in the process.
