About Us

Peggy has over 30 years of equine industry experience, she started her adventure in her early teens riding english and competed in eventing up through high school graduation.  While attending college at Utah State University, pursuing a Agribusiness degree, she worked for a cutting trainer and was introduced to a completely different, yet exciting discipline.  From cutting she experienced reining and reined cow horse and has been hooked ever since.  Peggy most recently spent the last 5 years riding with her trainer and mentor Chuck Nesmith, National Reining Horse Trainer and NRHA Judge of  Ault Colorado.  She shows competitively in NRHA, AQHA, IBHA, ABRA, CRCC and ASHA.  Peggy holds her judges card with the American Stock Horse Association (ASHA) and Oregon Family Equestrian Association (OFEA), and has donated the last 15 years to the local 4H program helping out most recently with the Ranch Horse Program and Hippology. She is an experienced Clinician offering private and onsite clinics.

Gary and Peggy relocated to Oregon City, from Colorado in 2012 and are proud to call Oregon home.  They share the farm with each other as well as many 4 legged family members.  Peggy's daughter Alysha is currently living and working in Denver, CO and is quite a hand with the horses herself. You'll see Gary around the property helping out with maintenance, hauling hay and jumping in where he's needed.  He's a big help in keeping our pastures healthy and our Trainer sane :)
