Gayle Paperno, Owner/Director 

Gayle has operated Total Equestrian Experience since 2009 and prior to that was the co-operator of Family Equestrian Connection. While her degree is in Recreation and Leisure Services, her love of horses brought her away from her 10 year career as a Recreation Director for the City of Los Angeles and into the world of equestrian care. Her goal is to create an equestrian community where families can come together to enjoy the love of horses and good friends. Gayle is a certified instructor with the American Riding Instructor Association and oversees all horse care, camp programs, special events, and lessons at Total Equestrian Experience. A favorite quote Gayle can be heard saying is, "it's not about the riding; it's about the life lessons one learns while riding or just being around horses." Gayle also works for Ride On  as the Site Manager for Rancho Potrero Community Equestrian Center in Thousand Oaks offering boarding and a Trail Lesson Rental Program.

Ashley has been teaching for TEE since it's inception and has shared her love of teaching with  all ages and levels of riders through the years. She is an accomplished Dressage Rider that has cliniced under Charles DeKumffy and is currently competing at the Prix St George Level. She has won Championships at 3 day eventing in the lower levels and is currently bringing up her young horse to begin competing in that venue.  She enjoys working with horses that need a more creative touch and is a quick thinker when it comes to problem solving. Ashley can often be found Galloping up the trails riding her horse Oscar while ponying her young horse Tigger. She is always followed closely by her shadow Loki, her German Shepard!

Riley Leary, Dr of Educational Technology; Registration Coordinator

As a middle school instructor Rileys passion lies with curricular design, but has found that her technological expertise can also be put to good use in business.  She has developed web based business systems using free/inexpensive programs, and has integrated programs that clients already use to expedite their business practices.  Riley likes to match her clients' needs with the products she knows will do what they need done.  Rileys goal is to bring everyone into the 24th century of her imagination- where technology allows us all the free time to reconnect with what really matters in life! She has done a great job for TEE!
