Ashley joined the Golden Age Ranch team in 2020 as the Ranch Manager. Ashley comes to GAR with over 30 years of equine husbandry, riding and educational programming experience. She is truly living out her dream of sunshine, beaches, and of course, horses!
In December of 2021, Ashley moved to Tortola to continue spreading her Equine knowledge. We wish her all the best.
Chloe began volunteering with the horses at 12 years old and learned most of what she knows about horses from previous ranch manager Jerry James. Chloe has been an irreplaceable asset to the ranch and the horses. She has devoted an incredible amount of time and effort to the well-being of our horses and we are immensely grateful. Chloe is now attending college and gaining even more knowledge about the Equine trade.

Danielle grew up riding and caring for horses. After a 10 year hiatus from horse riding she moved to St Thomas to connect with her family here and ended up rekindling her love for horses through her work caring for the retired racehorses here at Golden Age Ranch. Danielle works regularly at the Ranch caring for the horses. her contributions are sincerely appreciated.
Adrienne moved to St. Thomas to pursue her career as a speech and language pathologist and was searching for a way to get more involved in the community. She found her way to GAR and was immediately taken with the horses and inspired by the dedication of the current volunteers. Adrienne grew up riding and has always sought out opportunities to be involved in the equestrian world. It is her goal to horseback ride in every country she visits. She believes that you haven’t truly understood a place until you have taken in the scenery from a saddle. So far, she has ridden in Hungary, Honduras, Galapagos, Ecuador, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Greece, and New Zealand.
Born in Florida and blessed to grow up in the Virgin Islands, I got the opportunity to spend my summers with my grandparents on their farm where my love for animals rooted. Although being a relatively new addition to the team I feel at home and my love for the horses has grown fonder through getting to work closer with these gentle giants.
