Peter J. Hurst was born and raised in England, and his Horse Daze began at a young age. The start to his career was established at White’s Riding Stables. From there his passion for horses took him to Buckinghamshire and The Old Berkeley Hunt, and then to Aston Park Stud, in Oxfordshire. Working professionally with hunters, jumpers, and breeding thoroughbreds, his appreciation of horses only increased, and he knew that he would spend his entire professional life taking care of horses in one capacity or another. After immigrating to Canada, he continued on that path—working at Windfields Farm in Ontario, continuing his work in Alberta, and then, once he retired, settling down on picturesque Gabriola Island, BC, with his wife Terry and their two dogs.Listen to Peter as he tells how horses inspired his poetry.
