Peggy is a certified instructor. She spent her
youth in Atlanta and southern Florida riding and showing hunters. She managed a hunter barn in Conyers, GA during the 80's (pre Horse Park). Due to a vehicle accident she was forced to stop her horse career and move into sales. She covered territories in both Virginia and Georgia and finally settled in Eatonton, GA where she began to breed a few sport horses. In 2004 Peggy started The Lake Oconee Equestrian Center, thus re-entering the business she loves. In 2014 she acquired a new facility and created Idlewild Equestrian Center. The students at Idlewild are growing into competitive riders who are performing very well on the local circuits and also some A and AA rated shows.
