2018 Queen Ashley Barton
Ashley Barton - 2018 BFSC Queen
I have always been the kinda girl who would give up shorts and a tank top for an old shirt, boots, and a pair of wranglers instead. My name is Ashley Catherine Barton and I am the 2017 queen of the Black Forest Saddle Club. I am 18 years old this year and will be graduating Rampart High School in the spring. I love to ride my horses and play basketball and keep on top of my grades, holding a 3.5 GPA. I want to grow and learn in the horse and large animal environment and I plan going to college and minoring in an equine industry and majoring in business accounting. I hunt and fish with my dad and brother and prepare amazing crafts with my mom and love spending time with my one year old neice. I want to spread my love about horses in any way I can, and would love to share more about me and my horses at any given time. I look forward to this coming year and can not wait to have an amazing summer!
