Leslie Bierly


Leslie Bierly
For 35 years Leslie and Lewis Bierly have run a family-owned and operated farm nestled in the suburbs of Washington County. Leslie’s biggest joy is teaching and training. Her hard work has produced three extremely successful professionals, as well as hundreds of very competitive hunters and jumpers. Leslie’s training philosophy is quite simple, “Consistency and flexibility are the key. A well-thought out program for every individual, one that productively teaches rather than punishes the horse or person, will produce strong, confident athletes and a successful team who loves to do their job.” Tile Valley Farm is specifically designed for healthy and happy horses. The belief that horses need to be in their natural environment as much as possible means daily turn-out for every horse, in addition to carefully maintained feed, farrier and hi-tech sports medicine programs. “We are extremely dedicated to horsemanship and creating great horse people who are looking to be their very best at a sport and lifestyle they truly love.”

Megan Garcia


Megan Garcia
Megan Garcia has been surrounded by horses from day one. Born into a family with horse in their blood sealed her fate. She began riding as soon as she could catch and tack up her pony Misty. Her show career began at the age of nine on HMS Coastie. Coastie and Megan competed in the small pony hunters, and pony jumpers with great success. Immediately following her first year of competition on her pony Coastie came a new mount Vannah White, a drastic change in size Vannah was 17 hands tall! Then again with another year of competition behind her she moved on to yet another mount, and that is the way her junior career would play out. She had the opportunity to show many different horses during her years as junior rider. Many of the horses that Megan showed she also broke to ride, and did all of the training on. This gave her a unique opportunity to begin learning how to “speak horse” from a very early age. Some of the great horses that competed in the hunters, jumpers, and equitation with Megan during her junior career were, Preference, Trial Size, All Aboard, Alexander, Northern Exposure, Hope, and Sgt. Pepper.

Upon turning 18 Megan made the decision to be a professional hunter/jumper trainer. Her early years as a professional were hi-lighted by a few outstanding horses. She continued to show her beloved grand prix horse Sgt. Pepper, was blessed with an amazing hunter named Valedictorian that she competed in the 2nd. Yr. Green, and a lovely pre-green hunter named GQ. Along with those standouts were many other very nice horses. Through the upcoming years turning professional proved to offer many exciting perks. Traveling to Europe three times, and Argentina one time in search of quality young prospects, grand prix horses, and unbeatable amateur mounts has been a tremendous experience. Competing in two World Cup qualifying Grand Prix’s on her Belgium Warmblood Tokkie, owned by canterculture.com in 2006 was yet another outstanding experience to never be forgotten. Competing, teaching students, and searching for that next hunter/jumper extraordinaire continue to bring new and exciting challenges. The rewards in this profession prove to be limitless.

Kaitlyn Kleck


Kaitlyn Kleck
Kaitlyn began riding at age 8 in the small pony division. At age 11, she started showing exclusively with Leslie and Megan at Tile Valley Farm. With her horse, Going Places, she ended her junior career with championships in equitation and the children’s jumper division for OHJA and Zone 9. Kaitlyn was the Junior Representative for OHJA in 2003, responsible for fundraising money that supported OHJA’s young riders to compete at regional and national medal finals. Kaitlyn also received the OHJA scholarship based on her support to the organization and her horsemanship skills.

At the University of Oregon, Kaitlyn was a part of the intercollegiate equestrian team. For the three years she competed, she won the title of high point rider of her region, which qualified her to compete at the national finals for the Cacchione Cup. Her senior year she finished 6th place nationally (past winners include Beezie Madden and Peter Wylde). Kaitlyn graduated from the University of Oregon in 2007 with a degree in Journalism and Communication with an emphasis in Management Advertising.

Tile Valley Farm is very excited to welcome Kaitlyn, with her knowledge and enthusiasm for riding and teaching she is a great asset to our team.
