Ashlyn Renfroe

My name is Ashlyn Renfroe, I am a 12-year-old Crown 3 Equine sponsored rider.  Dr. Bridget and Crown 3 have done so many wonderful things for me and my amazing barrel, pole bending, goat tying and breakaway horses. My three competition mounts are Dance My Way to Victory (aka Kitten), Pocos Feisty Gal (aka Cornbread) and Whiteboy.

This year I have set some big goals. I want to represent Crown 3 Equine at the Texoma Junior Rodeo Association Finals where I hope to win 3 Saddles in barrels, poles and goat tying. I have also set my sights on the bright lights of Las Vegas at the KK Run for Vegas (known as the Junior NFR), as well as the All In Barrel Race.  With the help of Crown 3 Equine keeping my horses in great health, I can see all of my goals becoming a reality!!!

Charlie Colella

Charlie has been involved in rodeo for the past 25 years, having competing in various events – including Bull Riding!  He entered the equine rodeo world with the purchase of a 3 yr old mare out of the Dash For Cash bloodlines.  After several years of competition on this mare, Charlie bred her during her retirement and she produced two outstanding foals. 

Charlie’s current horses are his 12 yr old registered Paint gelding, Dashin Red Charger (out of his Dash For Cash mare), and his recent purchase, Stick L’il Bro, aka “Koda”.  Koda is a 6 yr old registered Paint, which he purchased as a 5 yr old and has been training himself.

Charlie trains his horses in multiple disciplines, including Barrels, Poles, Flag Race, Team Roping (head and heel), Calf Roping, and Team Penning.   His goal for the coming year is to expand Koda’s competition level in the barrel racing circuit and begin his roping training. 

With regards to Crown 3 Equine, Charlie says, “Dr. Bridget Heilsberg and Crown 3 Veterinary Services is a vital part of my equine program.  The knowledge and care she provides to me and my horses is invaluable.”
