Ashleigh Rauen is a second generation Equestrian professional who has enjoyed starting young horses and reschooling OTTB’s and problem horses since she was old enough to stay on them! Rauen did not ride while attending college, but quickly realized life was not complete without horses and dove back in headfirst after graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Washington. She focused on Dressage, honing her skills under Jessica Wisdom, Jeremy Steinberg and in Germany under Olympian and veritable Dressage queen Helen Langehanenberg. Upon return to her native Pacific Northwest, a free Thoroughbred project horse rekindled her jumping bug, and she has been an Area VII Eventing devotee/XC junkie since! Rauen now trains with Starfire Farm’s Tami Masters and Lisa Boyer. She currently competes Northern Expectation, a purebred Connemara mare, at Preliminary, and her own gelding, Fine Dutch Chocolate, in Dressage and Eventing. In 2017 both horses finished in the top 10 at every Horse Trials they entered.
