I'm a graduate student, horse-enthusiast and avid bibliophile. I started riding horses as soon as I was old enough to throw my leg over one.  My parents bred and trained Thoroughbred racehorses and I suppose my dedication to and love for the thoroughbred types grew there.  At the end of the day, my goal is to awaken a horse's love, eagerness and enthusiasm for it's work.  A relaxed and happy horse is a winner, in any ring.   -Ashley Hawkins, Owner & Trainer
