"I first met Peggy in 1992 when I audited one of her clinics on the East coast. With my background in counseling and teaching, I was astounded to see how Peggy's teaching style was not only changing their riding, but also impacting the riders on a much deeper level. At the end of the clinic, each person was visibly moved by the experience of that weekend. I realized that Peggy and I shared a passion for touching peoples' lives in meaningful and transformative ways. I was amazed how simple it was to reach people through their passion for their horses and riding. I was so enthused, that I wanted to contribute in some way and help Peggy promote her work and share her message. Since then, this work has become my calling and I continue to collaborate with Peggy on visions of how this work will be available as Peggy's legacy for the future.
