In recognition of her outstanding contributions as a volunteer, Wilton resident Mandy Jackson won the Peggy & Bill Larned Award for Most Helpful Volunteer at the 36th annual Pegasus Horse Show on May 19. The Larned award is given in memory of devoted Pegasus volunteers Peggy and Bill Larned. Peggy co-founded the Greenwich chapter of Pegasus in 1976. Bill accompanied Peggy as sound expert and video cameraman at many Pegasus horse shows.
An experienced equestrian, Jackson volunteers primarily as a horse leader during program lessons at Pegasus Therapeutic Riding’s main equestrian center, Pegasus Farm in Brewster, N.Y. In addition to volunteering with the nonprofit, Jackson also free-leased her horse, Loredo Z, to Pegasus Farm for a year, where he quickly became a favorite equine partner among students, staff and volunteers.
