Personal: Prior to birth, Peavy suffered a stroke, leaving her paralyzed on the left side of her body. When she was four, she began riding horses as a method of physical therapy. When she was 10, she got her first horse and developed a love for dressage. Peavy and her mother went on “dressage vacations” to Portugal where she took three lessons a day. After she returned home, her friend introduced her to para-equestrian dressage. From there, she started working toward her goal of representing the U.S. across the world....As a high school sophomore, Grade III athlete Peavy won the 2012 Youth Dressage Festival Championship…Peavy is one of the few para-equestrian athletes who also competes in able-bodied dressage…As a result, after returning from the WEG, the pair won Reserve Champion honors in the FEI Junior Team championship at the Great American/USDF Region 8 Championships.
