Pegasus Equine Therapy

A World of Change

Family Operated in Montrose, CO

Healing & Growth with Horses

From Kay Alexander, Licensed Clinical Social Worker & Founder of Pegasus Equine Therapy

Horses capture our hearts and inspire us to freedom, adventure, healing, and friendship.


For many years, I provided counseling to people in a traditional office setting, utilizing standard "talk therapy.” When I first heard about horses being used in therapy and recovery, I was skeptical but intrigued. Little did I know the kinds of results I would soon witness.

Our Programs

People of all ages and different challenges in their lives come through our gates at Pegasus Equine Therapy to find solutions and healing through Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP).


Our family-run ranch in Montrose County uses the EAGALA model of horse therapy, which involves a licensed mental health therapist, an equine specialist, and a horse or other animal to provide a unique and powerful experience for participants.
