Ashley Rumple is the Assistant Trainer for Ginger Long and Equetec as well as the Barn Manager at LongHaven Farm. She has over 25 years of experience with horses and over 15 years of experience in instruction and teaching. As Assistant Trainer, Ashley has gotten the opportunity to learn from every horse that has come through Ginger’s program.
Ashley began riding hunters and equitation which developed her ability to ride softly and smoothly. Once she came to Equetec, she learned that she needed the fundamentals of dressage to truly be able to correctly train and help horses. The eclectic mix of horses available at LongHaven Farm has given Ashley the chance to learn to ride in correct balance with softness and feel no matter the discipline or horse. Ashley is hungry for pursuing harmony with all horses she meets and is excited to help other riders in their journey as well.
Our mission is “In Pursuit of Harmony” and therefore our strategies always lean toward that focus.

Our lesson program for kids includes all aspects of riding: catching, grooming, tacking, and about 30-40 minutes of actual riding time depending on the child’s age and ability to focus.
A lifetime rider and competitor, Ashley Rumple, has a degree in Psychology, camp counselor experience, and loves working with kids of all ages.
The lesson will be a private ride and lead lesson to learn basic balance and communication skills before being taken off the line. This ensures safety and prevents a false sense of security.
Our horses and ponies are sensitive, safe, and wonderful teachers. They patiently mirror the rider as they grow in skill and confidence.
