In 1990 she turned professional working alongside top Hunter/Jumper trainers throughout the midwest till she founded Forest Hill Farm in 1994 where she rode, trained, and managed clients who competed in top-level horse shows around the country. Ashley’s teaching and riding philosophy is based on the knowledge and experience she has gained in the equestrian industry. She believes that good riding starts with flatwork, and that jumping is simply obstacles put in the way of your flatwork. Flatwork is essential and the base for riding. She also believes that you should never push a horse beyond its limits. Beyond teaching, she manages the training rides, customized supplements per horses needs, and individualized riding plan for each horse and rider.
