Peggy Hart is a very welcomed new addition to the K-J Equestrian  family.. She has been teaching for over 20 years in the fields of Dressage, Eventing, Hunter/Jumpers, and some Carriage Driving. Her passion has always been fox hunting where she is now Master of Fox Hounds and a whipper-in with the Oak Grove Hunt Club. We love to encourage any of our riders to try fox hunting as an alternative to getting outside of the show ring a few times a year.  Peggy also owned the company Equine Care Services where she cared for horses from backyard ponies to Olympic level show horses. She also works closely with the Equine Alliance at Shelby Farms to further the horse experience for riders and owners from all over the Shelby County areas.
