Ashley Taylor

Ashley is a high-spirited girl who takes on any challenge with enthusiasm. Not an exceptional student, Ashley shines at her dancing and singing classes. A bit of a Princess, her family were surprised when she asked if she could learn to ride. She loves the ponies and enjoys the lessons but more than anything loves the people at Pine Hollow. Ashley was the youngest rider at Pine Hollow until Lisa's fun-loving little sister, Melanie, turned up. The two of them hit it off right away even though there's plenty of competition between them. Ashley is happy to go along with all of Melanie's hairbrained ideas even when she knows they could get into a lot of trouble.

Janelle Corlass–Brown ( Plays Ashley )

The Corlass- Browns are a dancing family. Janelle has been learning dance for ten years, taking lessons in classical, tap, jazz and song and dance. Her older sister Gemma is now a student at the Australian Ballet School and Janelle’s mother was a Channel 9 dancer for nine years and before that was with the Channel 9 Tarax Show.

Janelle moved into acting when she won the role of Brigitta von Trap in the highly successful The Sound of Music stage production and while still with that show, she auditioned and was offered the role of Ashley in the first series of The Saddle Club.

A student at Templestowe College, Janelle’s best subjects are Maths, English and Social Science. She has developed a love of horseriding since she started in The Saddle Club and likes roller blading, athletics, gymnastics and roller-skating. Janelle also plays clarinet. After a couple of years of begging for a pet and promising to look after it, she has now bought with her own money a 2 year old white Bishon friese called Cupid. “He is white and fluffy. When he was a puppy he was so cute and he still is, even now that he is older. I walk him, feed him and love him to bits. He has a real sparkle in his eye that makes you want to cuddle him,” she enthuses.

Janelle is not averse to a bit of retail therapy and likes to socialize and shop with her friends. “I like to shop for clothes, usually very colorful and I like trendy and groovy things,” Janelle admits. She still competes in dancing competitions, having won over the years a swag of prizes in dance festivals, including the Aggregate Winner 6years/under 9 at the Southern Dance Festival and Aggregate winner in the under 6’s at the Heidelberg Dance Festival.

Her other credits include Phoenix on Tour for the Phoenix Theatre Company and in television she appeared in the comedy television series Big Girls Blouse. She has been a singer/dancer on Carols by Candlelight, (Channel 9) for the last seven years, a performance she has really enjoyed. Janelle aspires to be an actress when she leaves school but Architecture is also a great love; she likes to design houses and buildings in her spare time. “Design is something I am passionate about, as well as singing, dancing and acting,” Janelle tells us.

I think she’s a great girl. She is smart, but she doesn’t always show it. She is very caring about her friends and likes to make sure everyone is O.K. She thinks well and I would like her as a friend.

The Saddle Club™ series stars three heroines, Stevie, Carole and Lisa, who form The Saddle Club™ at the Pine Hollow Stables. Each character has a distinctly different personality but all share an equal love of horses and a strong loyalty to each other.
