Welcome to Turnin' 3 Productions
TURNIN' 3 PRODUCTIONS, LLC. WAS CREATED BY HEATHER BERTRAND UNDER THE
OWNERSHIP OF GARY & HEATHER BERTRAND OF OPELOUSAS, LOUISIANA AND BRINGS
TOGETHER NEW AND FAMILIAR FACES WITH YEARS OF BARREL RACING EXPERIENCE.
Turnin’ 3 Productions, LLC. (T3P) is an organization formed to promote the exciting sport of Barrel Racing
and its growth in the state of Louisiana. The goals of Turnin’ 3 Productions are to increase the number of
participants, improve the quality of shows and enhance the image of barrel racing. Turnin’ 3 Productions
also promotes youth participation and co-ed competition. Turnin’ 3 Productions would like to strongly
encourage the expansion of equine related activities that would help increase the economic impact of the
horse industry across Louisiana. Promotion of the horse industry in Louisiana is not only vital to the
industry itself but it is vital to the State economy.
Since 2008 our events have been held in Deridder, LA. This year(2017) we have decided to move the
Christmas Classic Barrel Race to Kinder, LA. Although we loved Deridder and it became our comfort zone
we felt it was best to move and grow our production company in a bigger, climate control facility. We
appreciate everyone that has followed us through the years and hope to continue to meet new contestants,
vendors, spectators and sponsors.
We have also committed to producing a benefit barrel race each year. The Friends of St. Frances Cabrini
Cancer Center Barrel Race which all funds raised go to the Patient Assistance Fund at the Cancer Center.
Heather also does the books at several barrel races through out the year. Hope to see everyone down the
Thank you all,
Gary & Heather Bertrand
