Ashley Bertell is an FEI Dressage Trainer, Instructor, and Coach native to the PNW. A USDF Bronze and Silver Medalist on the road to her Gold medal with the goal of International Competition. Paired with her love of riding is a passion for coaching which earned her The Oregon Dressage Society’s Mary Ann Judkins Instructor Of The Year Award in 2022. As an active competitor, Ashley has ridden both personal and client horses down centerline consistently earning high placings as well as championship titles. As a young rider Ashley gained experience through working student positions until bigger opportunities came along. In 2006 she took a summer position running and teaching a summer lesson program in New York, and in 2007 she moved to Southern California to work for the Swedish International rider, Mette Rosencrantz. Next was an assistant trainer position based out of Spirit Equestrian in Somis, California. There she was given the opportunity to work with young prospects, clients, and learn on seasoned FEI horses. Returning to the PNW in 2010, Ashley focused on establishing her own program. After her son, Riley, was born in 2019, joined her long time mentor and coach, Brooke Voldebaek, at Pirouette Dressage Center as they opened their doors in 2020. In 2022 together with her husband, Kyle, they relocated to Oakville, WA. There they run Rail Stone Farms, a home based boarding and training facility offering high quality care and tailored programs in a boutique environment. Ashley enjoys working with horses and riders at all levels, with a soft spot for mares and non traditional dressage horses. Her recipe for success is focused on a balance of hard work and harmony to bring out the best in every athlete.

Lindsey Lyle

Amateur Eventer and Professional Photographer in Knoxville, TN

Lindsey is single-handedly responsible for all of the beautiful product photography on our website and social media. After being a competitive eventer most of her life, she adopted a one-eyed thoroughbred, Solo, who wasn't much of a fan of the racing life. For the last five years they have been making fun the priority dabbling in trail riding, dressage, and jumping at home and at schooling shows. If you live in east Tennessee and need an equestrian photographer, she is your girl!

Do you have one of those friends who somehow knows everyone and their entire life story while you're struggling to remember the name of the girl who you've been riding with for three years and have just mentally referred to as "Scout's Mom" because you're scared to tell them you don't know their name? That friend is Dani. You probably already know Dani and don't even realize it. Dani is mom to Bastille, a semi-retired arabian who she competed in endurance races with, and Evie, a 3 year old KWPN filly that she bought as a weanling. Dani has made Evie into the most well-rounded three year old citizen there is by spending the last two years taking her to every horsemanship clinic she can find. Like we said, if you already know about High Point, you probably heard it from Dani. 

Anna Rose Hutcheson

Anna Rose has been eventing with her horse, F for Fortune, for the past three years. She is currently running training level and looks forward to competing at the Area III championships in 2023. Her riding goals are to move up to modified and, eventually, a 1* event but her biggest goal with riding is to have fun. If you event in the southeast, look for her riding in our sparkly saddle pads in the dressage arena!
