Ashley Whittington

Equestrian Technician

​Born and raised in Savannah, Georgia, Ashley moved to the Lehigh Valley in 2014 and continued her career working in equestrian facilities. Ever since she was a little girl, she had an interest in the field of animal care mostly revolved around horses. Her introduction to the equestrian world came in 2006 when she began working at therapeutic riding facilities where she assisted both students and horses through many events including two Special Olympics shows. In addition, Ashley has worked as a groom and animal care technician at several large and well-known equestrian facilities in the Hilton Head Island area of South Carolina including Longfield Stables at Palmetto Bluff and Spring Island. While still living in the South, she owned two horses herself and has ridden in both English and Western disciplines.  Ashley’s experiences included supervising equine care staff, teaching beginner lessons, guiding trail rides, assisting in summer camps, and general horse management. Despite all of these skills, her long-standing passion for animal care is what drives her to provide the best life possible for the horses each and every day. Every animal at Hill Crest is loved and cared for as if they were her very own.

Lisa J. Cope

Owner and Barn Manager of Hill Crest Farm LLC., Lisa has spent her life riding and successfully showing American Saddlebred Horses. Her showing career started when she was 7 years old.  After her third lesson at Frank Person Stables her father bought her her very own horse named Joy.  Lisa showed a few local shows with Joy and then she became the proud owner of Main Society.  "Susie" and Lisa showed successfully in the 10 and under walk/trot division and then onto the the 13 and under junior division.  When it was time to move into the 14 and older junior division Lisa again successfully showed Be Dazzled to many Championships.  Then Lisa showed in the Ladies Amateur division with Cassandra's Fair Lady, eventually .       

Lisa's love of horses and experience as a rider is a teaching tool that she uses with all her beginner riders.  Her goal is to teach a solid foundation and she instills confidence and knowledge not only in riding but in the care of the horses.  She takes pride in turning out well-groomed horses and riders at horse shows.  

Lisa also takes great pride in running a well organized, clean facility.  She along with her staff tends to the needs of all the horses on the property.
