Peggy Kuparinen Bajwa is an English Equestrian riding instructor who began riding horses at the age of 10 in Rancho Mirage, California at Equestrian Centers International (ECI). Peggy's family has had a long love affair with horses that started in the late 1800's in Finland, where her great grandfather raised trotters for harness racing.

At the age of 12 Peggy was already riding at the Equestrian Center International (ECI) in Rancho Mirage under the watchful eye of Michael D Cintas, current USA Olympic Equestrian/Pentathlon coach. He took her under his tutelage and taught her the artistry and finesse of proper English Equitation, which he himself learned from George Morris, a previous USA Equestrian Olympic coach. Under Michael's training, Peggy began showing horses on the "A" circuit, winning numerous championships & ribbons at -

During her junior and senior years of High School, Peggy took independent studies so she may focus and dedicate herself to riding. It was not uncommon for Peggy to be at the barn for 8+ hours a day, 7 days a week, to practice her riding skills. It was during this time that she started to also work at ECI where she schooled horses and taught riders along side Armand Lacayo, a professional rider with The Royal Lipizzaner Stallion Word Tour. Armand continues to teach Dressage and hunter riding clinics all over USA and internationally.

Peggy's training has only been with the best; so her teaching techniques shall only be of the highest levels of the sport. Peggy teaches her students to love their horses, to take care of the horses, and to properly communicate with the horses. Peggy is a stickler for basics, fundamentals, and teaches traditional hunter styles to her students.

Currently, Peggy resides in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. with her husband and their 3 sons Kurren (12), Kinton (10) and Mikko (9). All 3 of her sons love horses and take riding lessons from Peggy.
