Every time I showed up at the office Peg was kind and helpful.

It was like visiting with friends and family at the FQHA shows she ran. Peg will be missed.

So sorry to hear this news. Peg was the epitome of kind & helpful to my daughter and I as we started on our AQHA journey. Many condolences to Melissa and the family 🙏.

I worked with Peg as our show staff for a few large Minnesota shows. She was great at her job and a great lady. RIP.


Deb Sinz

So very sorry to hear this! I always enjoyed talking with her in the office! She was always so supportive and encouraging! Hugs to Melissa and family!


Debby Ferreir

So many precious memories of Peg ! She was always there to give me advice and be my Friend. I loved our talks! If there was anything you needed to know about dealing with AQHA she was the women to get you in the right direction. She was a kind and loving person. I was just texting with her the other day and now I can’t believe she is gone. But I’m glad she got to enjoy 1 last Pumpkin roll my mom made for her which she loved so much.  I know she will be watching over us. ❤️🙏🏻


Leslie Kalbach

I moved to FL in 2018 and met Peg at the Gulf Coast. Later at the show I introduced her to my husband as “Peggy” and was kindly, but firmly, told she was NOT Peggy. We had many good conversations at subsequent FQHA shows. She was like a horsey grandmother to me. She will truly be missed.


Donna DuRant

Peg was the true ambassador for FQHA. She was so helpful to so many of us for so many years. She had integrity and passion for our sport. Prayers to her family and the rest of us who will miss her terribly. RIP Peg, you are a beautiful soul.

How we loved seeing Peg at the shows (nineties), and always brought her some jelly beans. So comforting just knowing she was there. What a great loss.

Much Love and Respect!!

I’ll miss you, Peg. You were so kind to help my parents park their motor home in the late 1980s. She also asked me to help the office break a tie in high point awards. Though I had truly won 4 of the classes and would remain over all Highpoint rider of my last youth show in Tampa orange blossom (she asked) if I would consider letting the other contestant be the champion of one of my classes to help her family through a difficult time in her life and be recognized as the champion. I am so grateful she knew this would be a pivotal event for me as a contestant and a young leader in our sport. I cherish her no nonsense Ethics and honesty love of the sport. God Bless you, Peg.

Love, G-man
