PETER GREIG - President

The Greig family has really enjoyed showing with the Texas Palomino Exhibitor Association (TPEA) for 18 years, always looking forward to every Show. The competition, camaraderie, and quality at these Shows have helped us win several PHBA World Championships, as have many TPEA members through the years.

At our farm in 2015 we began breeding exclusively Palominos with our Cremello Stud, so far achieving a Reserve World Champion.  His offspring will be showing at many future TPEA Shows.

Pete is a retired American Airlines Captain with 33 ½ years, flying mostly International Routes.

The Greigs' have sponsored many suppers at the horse show & always have plenty of food to share.

Your TPEA officers are very much looking forward to seeing you and your family at the Shows this year and beyond.
