|Bio :The American Riding Instructors Association has recently recognized Terry Peiper as one of the top fifty riding instructors in the United States. The winners were selected by an independent panel of industry leaders after being nominated by her students that ride and train with her in Carlisle PA.|
Terry Peiper has over 40 years’ experience riding and training horses and over 25 years’ experience providing private instruction to students. Specializing in “helping horses with their people,” her instruction emphasizes horse psychology and a blend of classical and natural horsemanship skills. Her students ride English and Western, some for show but most for pleasure.
“My mission is to help people communicate and understand what truly makes a horse happy so that they can have that relationship and partnership they want with their horses. I love riding, training and showing horses. For me, showing is how I measure how successful I am with my training. But the real success is when one of my students rides, trains and shows his or her own horse. That is the ultimate success for me: helping riders reach their goals with their own horses.” Terry has acquired a wide range of experience and training throughout her career. Her background includes showing Appaloosas for almost 20 years at the regional and world levels, judging for over 10 years, riding and showing side-saddle, 4-H and Pony Club, dressage, hunt seat, barrel racing, hunter paces and fox hunting. Terry has shown at the prestigious Upperville, Washington International and Pennsylvania National Horse Shows, Bull Ride Mania and almost every where in between.
In addition to being an accredited Richard Shrake Resistant Free Riding instructor, Terry is an American Riding Instructors Association Level II certified instructor and is currently studying to be a certified instructor with the International Society of Rider Biomechanics. Terry and husband, Larry own Buck N Horse Hollow, a 60 acre farm in south central PA where Terry teaches and holds clinics several times a year.
