Back to Meet the Team

Ashley Connole


Ashley grew up in Long Beach, California and has been involved in the equestrian world since the age of 5. She spent most of her free time as a young girl at the barn with family members and friends and never stopped. Throughout her life she has trained in jumping, dressage, and western riding. She began volunteering at TRC at the age of 14 and fell in love with the program. In 2021 she began teaching under Kirsten and Donna, working towards her certification as a therapeutic riding instructor, and has enjoyed every minute of it.

She is currently attending CSULB, where she is studying communications and psychology, and enjoys being able to apply her love for people, horses, and academics to her work each day. In her free time, you can find her riding, skiing, reading, hiking, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.
