Treeline Stables Announces Transition of Ownership to
Kristen & Jason Ainsworth

PARKER, TEXAS (November 2017) – Tom and Louise Shanley are proud to announce that Kristen and Jason Ainsworth will be acquiring Treeline Stables and its property at the beginning of 2018. For nearly 38 years, Treeline Stables has provided exceptional service in the Hunter/Jumper industry in North Texas, dedicated to providing a safe, professional, and nurturing riding experience for both horse and rider.

 “I’ve been here since I was six, so this is more than a barn to me; it’s a family business. Nothing has changed in the past 25 years since I started here, and we are excited to not only keep the business within ‘family’ but to keep everything running the same as well. This opportunity means the world to us and we look forward to growing Treeline for another 25+ years” says incoming owner Kristen Ainsworth.

Current owner Louise Shanley adds, “My goal when I was 10 years old was to own a riding stable. Having been very successful in making this happen, I see Kristen as being one young lady who can and will carry on the Treeline legacy. She is passionate about everything and will keep things going as it has been for the past 37 years. Everything will be in good hands with her!”

Kristen Ainsworth, who is from Allen, started riding at the young age of 4. While continuing riding at Treeline, she also spent her amateur years training with some of the top trainers across the country, including Olympic Coach Maria Long, while showing nation-wide on the “A” circuit. After her Junior years, Kristen rode for Oklahoma State University’s Equestrian Team on a full-ride scholarship. From a business perspective, she has a very well-rounded background of business management. With her resignation coming at the beginning of 2018, she currently sits as the Operations and Financial Officer for her family’s multi-million-dollar promotional product business, Knock-Out Specialties, Inc.

Treeline Stables will remain its location in Parker and Kristen, along with her family, will be moving on property. Tom and Louise Shanley, who founded Treeline Stables in 1980, have purchased a home in a neighboring town and have plans to continue traveling the world. Even though they have decided to retire, Louise will continue to work closely with Kristen to ensure the transition of ownership and day-to-day details are seamless.

 It is with great intentions that Kristen continue to provide the same services and expectations as the years past in providing the highest level of horse care, riding instruction and experiences for horses and riders of all levels and ages.
