Ashley Gates


Ashley visited our farm when she was 7-years old for a summer horse camp, and instantly got the “horse bug” after riding a sweet horse named Ditto. She soon after began showing and working at the farm. Ashley realized that being around horses will always be her passion.

Ashley began leasing a Quarter Horse named Willow when she was 12, who gave her a love of caring for “grey mares.” She and Willow took great pride when showing in Horsemanship and Pleasure classes at the local shows. 

In 2011, Ashley began her horse ownership journey with Pebbles, a feisty Appendix Quarter Horse from our farm. Pebbles and Ashley participated in a variety of experiences including Hunter/Jumper, Western, and Cross-Country, but their favorite will always be Pleasure riding. 

Ashley now is a Kindergarten Teacher throughout the school year, and is one of our Camp Counselors during the summer. She loves sharing her passion of horses with beginner-intermediate riders during our summer camps.
