Clark and Amateur owner Shelby, earned APHA points in open & amateur halter, hunter under saddle and trail. 

Shelby has done all of Clark's training and he is maintained and managed at home by herself. The true beauty of the "Pistol Packers" 

Shelby owned and showed my old show gelding, PRR Classy Whiskey,a.k.a. Earl (who reminds me a lot of Clark). She and Earl earned  superiors in halter, showmanship, and horsemanship and a top 5 Pt.H.A. Halter World Title in 2013. Shelby and Earl neared superiors in trail, pleasure, and hunter under saddle. To numerous awards and titles to list (she would need her own page on the website). 

She is now in college becoming an Animal Health Technician. I am so pleased with this amazing young lady and I know her and her new "Earl" prodigy will also do amazing things together. 

Watch for them in open and breed show pens in 2019.

Zeplin is another young Pistol project that was started, trained and shown by his Amatuer owner. 

Stephanie has put an awesome start on this gelding, is winning and placing well in halter, pleasure and trail at  Sask Federation Open Horse shows in 2018.

Saskatchewan open shows are very well attended and the Christmas in September Show saw entries of 20 - 30 horses in her classes. Steph placed in the prize money at this show in all her performance classes against senior, broke horses with a ton of training on them. 

Proud of this young lady and her training abilities. She is not afraid to use this 3 year old like a good ol broke gelding to pony the weanlings around the farm. 

Another Pistol prospect trained, maintained, and managed at home and competing well with the best of them 

Congratulations Stephanie. Looking forward to your future.

Corrinne and Porshe have been doing awesome together in and out of the show pen.

Corrine is a "new to me" show mom, and Porshe has been the best prospect for her to learn and grow with. She purchased Porsche as a yearling and has been involved with her training right from the start. As the young mare learned, so did Corrine. She has broken every rule about green rider, green horse don't mix. These 2 beat all the odds and have held their own against seasoned riders and horses in the show pen, 

Corrine has proven not only to herself, that she can do this, Porsha has proven to me that an honest young prospect, can be forgiving and quick to learn, even with a new mom. Corrine enlisted the help of several trustworthy trainers and horsepeople, and has learned more in her short time with Porsha than many younger students learn in years. 

These 2 new prospects have taught me so much also, and there is no greater reward than to see a good freind and her young horse learning and appreciating the lesson of horsemanship and life that only we know a horse can show us. 

Hats off my friend, you are an inspiration to anyone thinking they are too old to learn a new trick.

I didn't get Roxy going under saddle till 2018 (her 2 Yo year) but honestly the most mature and easy going filly I have ever had the pleasure of owning and starting. 

2 ground work and round pen sessions, some very light riding, a trip to Saskatoon to meet some trail obstacles, a trail challenge competition,  a ride out in December bareback and bridleless and this kid is broke. 

This girl was born broke, she just needed someone to prove it. Extremely gentle, well natured soul, they don't come much sweeter or kinder than this,

PRR Dreamn of Pistols (a.k.a. "Quinton")

Owned by Dan & Corrine Toronchuk & Family, ridden by Jade Toronchuk

2015 Sorrel Tobiano Gelding

Dam: PRR Dreamn Thru Class X CT Gallantly

What a crazy ride this young gelding with incredibly talented young girl. Jade was crowned Alberta High School Rodeo Queen this spring. She'd had Quinton home for a week when she entered a home town arena at full tilt with a flag (one handed) past a 4 horse draft team. This began the whirl wind experience Quinton would learn to accept and love. I never dreamt I would have him ready for this girl. They have spent the summer parading around, racing thru grand entries and having a ball. 

Thanks Jade for taking Quinton with you, and good luck with the Rodeo Queen dreams. I have no doubt you will do amazing things in and out of the arena.
