Introducing Team Waterford…

Kathleen PeeplesOwner/trainer Kathleen Peeples is a lifetime horsewoman. She grew up in New Jersey, spending her teen years as a busy and competitive junior exhibitor at Anita Hoitsma’s Bridlevale Farm, the cradle of future World Champion horse trainers.

In 1991, she married her peer, professional trainer Lynn Peeples, and this successful breeding and training partnership continued until 2015. Perhaps their heir best joint effort, daughter Kendra, arrived on the scene in 1994, and is also a horse lover as one might expect from two professional parents!

Life is constantly changing to accommodate our personal needs and as such, Kathleen is now heading up the training program at Waterford Farm with the assistance of two top young trainers–

Christopher Bernard & HAE Look At MeChristopher Bernard has been a fixture at Waterford Farm since he was a teenager. It was our privilege to watch this smart young horseman grow and develop into a very capable trainer of champions. We are thrilled that he has chosen to join the team at Waterford to further his professional career. Chris shows a great aptitude for training and presenting the in hand horses, as evidenced by his recent outstanding performance at the 2016 New York Breeders Sweepstakes where topped a beautiful class of weanlings with HAE Look At Me (pictured).

Ledyard's Maximilian & Courtney SegulinCourtney Segulin grew up in Ohio, and sat her first horse on her fourth birthday. A few years later, her mother purchased a Morgan mare and Courtney began the dream of many little girls, growing up in Pony Club and attending 4-H shows and working her way up to USEF Class A Morgan shows. She worked with Jennifer Panek at Morning View Stables in New York while attending college, then spent time with Steve Davis at the UVM Morgan Horse Farm in Vermont. After working at several other prominent Morgan show barns, including Amanda DuPont’s Windward Farm in the position of Assistant Trainer, we are thrilled to welcome Courtney to Waterford Farm in the position of Trainer.
