Meet Karan Moore - Peterhouse Equestrian Centre Manager

Karan Moore joined Peterhouse in May 2019 as an Instructor and Manger of the Equestrian Centre.

Born in Gweru, her family moved to Phalaborwa, South Africa where she completed her schooling and developed her love for horses and nature, living a stone’s throw from the Kruger National Park and learning to ride at the Phalaborwa Mining Company Riding Club. Upon leaving school Karan trained as a Horse Riding Instructor at Stonyhurst Riding School, in KwaZulu Natal.

Deciding this was her true calling, Karan went on to further her training in the UK where she gainned valuable experience and completed her British Horse Society Instructors Level 3 Coaching Certificate. During her time in the UK Karan worked at a Warmblood Stud with quality stock and good bloodlines like Grand Prix dressage horse, Broadstone Demonstrator. She also worked for Tim & Antonia Brown Eventing and travelled to many top shows like Burghley, Badminton, and Olympia to name a few. The Cottesmore Hunt provided her with many horses to ride, exercise and plenty of work in this area in the winter months.

After many years of living and working in rural Leicestershire, following her career in horses and studying part-time, Karan then qualified as a Cambridge English Language Teacher (CELTA). This gave her the wings to travel and explore the world further. In 2016 Karan left the UK for the Galapagos Islands to teach English. After this, she moved to teach in Cuenca, Ecuador at the English International School. Horses never being far from her mind Karan took every opportunity to explore on horseback and hike wherever she visited and travelled to.

In 2018 Karan went to Spain to continue learning Spanish and continue her English teaching career. Whilst in Spain Karan traversed the Camino Santiago pilgrimage across Spain, which helped in her decision to return to her roots and her true calling of being a Riding Instructor.

Karan’s vision for the PEC is to provide a safe, professional and fun environment for the pupils of the Peterhouse group to enjoy the sport and to develop their horsemanship skills to a high standard comparable with the rest of the world.
