This week we are joined by equestrian expert Ash Atkinson, Founder - Atkinson Equine Group.
Ash was born and raised in the small industrial town of Sudbury, England located 60 miles north of London. At the age of 20, he moved to Germany to work for one of the largest equestrian breeding facilities. He spent 2 years learning and received great exposure to the sales and management side of the equestrian industry and developed an extensive contact list of professionals all across the world.
He then went on to spend a year working for La Silla in Mexico where he furthered his education in the development of competition horses and established an in-depth understanding of the Latin American market.
Ash then moved to the USA. His first two years in the US were spent in Southern California where he began to acquire knowledge in the US real estate market. Due to the nature of the clientele in the equestrian industry. Ash was also able to pivot his activities into providing Jet/Yacht charters and sales that combine into the high-end luxury lifestyle.
He now resides in Wellington, FL “Disneyland for horses” with a focus on working with ultra-high net worth investors in creating alternative asset investments. Ash has created a pool of investors and clients for the management, acquisition, and sale of high-performance show jumping horses. “This is incredibly exciting for me as there is a lot of pressure involved to make the best decisions you can and consistently create returns for everyone involved.”
Ash has a great passion to stop climate change and he is launching a climate fund early 2022 with a mission to invest in technologies committed to stopping climate change through solar, hydrogen and large-scale financing of green alternative energy incentives. Ash was featured in "Yahoo Finance 20 Entrepreneurs To Watch".Support the show (https://paypal.me/sidehustlecity)
