Hailing from the wilds of greater Columbia, SC, Ashley has ridden most of her life. And, after ten years dedicate to the medical field, she made the decision to follow her dreams and passion: horses.
Historically speaking, Ashley’s junior years were spent riding Cathy Cram, Karen Kelly, and Judy Young. She was fortunate to be involved with some incredible horses, and had outstanding opportunities to travel, show, and ride. As an amateur she continued her equine experience growth with John Abbott and Brett Sterling.
In 2020, the year of the big change in her life, Ashley pursued that passion by moving to Aiken, SC, to work with Kate Cardalico Bailey, in the position of barn manager for the Silver Bluff Equestrian.
Although now settled in teaching at Tally Ho Equestrian Center in 2022, Ashley continues to ride and work at the Hunter show barn; Christison Stables in Camden, SC. Not to be outdone, she continues her Pony Mafia group, as well.
Bree Taylor grew up in the lesson program at Tally Ho, riding and showing with us. She has worked in the facility as a feeder and handler for many years, as well.
Additionally, she has been training and showing in Dressage, so she brings this wonderfully diverse flatwork to her students. She took on the role of a camp counselor/instructor 4 years ago, and has now progressed into one of the main riding instructors at Tally Ho.
Brianna (Bree) is a certified ARIA instructor. In addition to competing locally, and putting in miles of riding on green horses, she is riding clinics with the likes of: Jodie Kelley, Missy Roades, Mary Wooten and Jamie Grant, to name a few.
