Ashley was instantly captivated by dressage when she first witnessed it during an exhibition at the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto. She was only 10, but the beauty of the sport, especially as performed by Christilot Boylen, hooked her for good. Ashley was later coached by Boylen for several years on her way to representing Canada in four Olympics. As of 2017, Ashley began representing America. Based in Florida, she has a deep string of horses and has the 2020 Tokyo Games square in her sights, while also working with several accomplished students.
