As Ashley was raised on a horse ranch in northern Alberta it is only natural that horses are still a huge part of Ashley's life. Ten years ago she decided she wanted to learn to trick ride so she packed up her belongings and horses and moved to southern Alberta to take lessons from the world renowned trick rider Jerri Duce. Now performing all over Canada, Ashley loves the thrill of fast horses, performing for crowds and leaving audiences sitting on the edge of their seats. Her horse, Madonna, has proven to be an unbelievable partner. When not trick riding, Ashley can be found in the roping box or riding in the mountains in the summer.
