Board of Directors


Robert Hartley - Chairman

Born and raised in WY, Robert has had many different mentors that have guided his journey as a horse trainer: Max Pollet, Roy Yates, Rodger Peterson, Steve Schwartzenberger, and Rocky Dare, to name a few.

Horses have provided an exciting journey for Robert, including living and training horses in Germany for 4 years, a breeding and horse shoeing certificate from Oregon State University and competing on an International, National, and Regional level.

In 2010 the Hartley's moved to Harrisburg, OR and became owners of a horse facility that offers training, clinics, breeding, boarding, lessons and much more.

Roberts experience includes 10+ years on multiple AQHA Affiliate Boards, in 2017 he became an AQHA National Director, and joined the ASHA Board in 2014 and is now serving as President.  Robert continues to be a voice for members and horses.


Stacey Lyle - Vice-Chairman

Stacey was born and raised in Placerville, California and has always been in love with horses.  She showed hunter-jumpers throughout high school and was also introduced to Reiners during that time.

While earning a Bachelor's Degree in Agricultural Systems Management, Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, Stacey worked for the late Jeff Walker and developed her love for the all around stock horse.  Jeff's horses could rope, rein, work a cow and trail ride, all in the same day.

In 2005, Stacey moved to Oregon and worked for a Veterinary Service Inc. until 2014.  She and husband, Jason Lyle now own a manufacturing business in Lebanon, Oregon.  In addition, they raise a small herd of Simmental, Angus, and Club calf cattle inn Lacomb with their son Cole, and daughter, Cassie.

Riding and showing horses has given Stacey many opportunities to learn from a large handful of wonderful trainers in various disciplines and she has enjoyed taking the best parts from each one. Her favorite aspect of the ASHA format is that it showcases the aspects of the all-around working horse.


Stacy Jo Hartley - Secretary

Stacy Jo grew up in Grants Pass, OR.  It was here that she pursued her two loves: horses and golf.

After graduating in 1988, Stacy traveled to Las Cruces, NM on a full golf scholarship to New Mexico State University.  It was here that she achieved Academic All American.

Stacy decided to move back to Oregon and play for the University of Oregon Women's Golf Team.  In 1993, Stacy graduated from U of O with a Bachelors of Science in Sociology.

After college, she turned professional and traveled the women's mini golf tour. Her journey led her to assist in opening an indoor golf teaching facility in Scottsdale, AZ and then move to San Francisco, CA.

Her professional life took many different turns in California: working for Vogue in advertising, assisting in investing banking at Morgan Stanley, part of the internet boom and worked for a start up business Red Herring and then circled around to teaching golf.

In 2003, Stacy returned to Oregon and worked as the Production Manager for her family at Mountain Monograms. This is when she met her husband, Robert Hartley. They now live with their daughter Hope in Harrisburg, OR.


Kendra Winans - Treasurer

Born in Clements, CA, Kendra grew up with a deep love for all animals. Her family was and still is heavily involved in many different associations.

Raising and showing Australian Shepherds has been something that Kendra grew up doing with her family. Although she loves her Aussies, her true love is horses.

At a young age Kendra began riding in the NorCal Junior Rodeo and on a traveling drill team.

Her family moved to Scio, OR in 2004 where she resides today with her husband Matt and children.

Together, as a family, the Winans raise a broad array of livestock to provide quality meat to family and friends.


Peggy Bond-Heath

With over 30+ years in the equine industry, Peggy has competed, instructed and learned through her experiences.

She started competing in her early teens riding English and showing in three day eventing.

While attending college at Utah State University, she was introduced to several Western disciplines that ranged from pleasure, cutting, reining and reined cow horse. It was her work with Chuck Nesmith where she found her passion.

In 2009 she took an interest in the new and quickly growing ranch horse versatility program and has been hooked ever since.

Peggy moved to Oregon in 2014. It was then that she launched her business where she specializes in training both horse and riders in the ranch horse versatility discipline, and she has coached multiple riders to local, regional and national titles in ASHA Novice, Limited Non-Pro and Non-Pro All-Around Championships.

Most recently, Peggy won the 2017 ASHA Region 6 All-Around Championship and National Championship in Green Horse Reining, Trail, Pleasure and Cow Horse.

Being a clinician and judge is part of her passion to teach. She holds several judge's cards and clinicians across the Nation.


Laurie Gillihan

Laurie was born in Sioux City, Iowa where her first horse was a retired racehorse which she rode endless circles in the round pen as a four year old.  A handful of horses came in and out of her life as a young girl that nurtured her passion for horses.

In 1968, Laurie and two of her five siblings moved with their Mom to Lake Oswego, OR where she met her (now) husband in high school.  Married in 1978, Dave and Laurie have three grown and married children, and seven grandchildren.

Laurie worked with Dave off and on in his mortgage business for several years.  She got back into horses when the kids were out of college.  Her first ever showing experience was in 2015, a WSSH show!  Laurie continues to ride and show her buckskin gelding "Lincoln" and loves every minute of it.

Laurie and Dave currently live in Sisters, Oregon with their two mini-Aussies.
