About Painted River Ranch

Laura Martin has been raising and training horses for 4 decades. First as a 4-H member, then as a AQHA & APHA Lifetime member. Horses she’s raised and trained have gone on to break world records like the most APHA World titles earned by a Canadian bred horse. Others have earned National and Top 20 World and APHA All Around awards.

PRR horses have earned a reputation of being quiet, laid back and trusting horses who are versatile in abilities.

Lessons, Coaching & Judging

In 2018, Laura turned in her amateur card so she could coach, teach and judge by renewing and earning the following certifications:
  • Saskatchewan Horse Federation (SHF) all breed judge
  • International Mountain Trail Association (IMTCA) Judge and Trainer
  • Equestrian Canada Western Competition Coach
  • American Society of Equine Appraisers (ASEA)

Our Horses

APHA Foal getting some loving
In 2014, after the loss of husband Bruce Martin, Laura sold the cattle and downsized the breeding horse herd from 20 mares and 3 stallions, to just 2 mares and her 3X World Champion paint stallion Pistol Packin Frekles.
Laura and partner Ralph, breed just a couple of their own mares and retain the offspring for their personal use.

Laura still promotes and advertises Petes offspring on their sale page.

If your timing is right, you may come across one of her own projects looking for a forever home.
