PRR A Fancy Pistol (aka: Raina)
PRR A Famous Pistol (Raina) May 2016 Filly
Sired by Pistol Packin Frekles,
Dam: PRR Dreamn Thru Class
What a busy year this young filly had. She spent the spring at Rivers Edge preparing for the 2019 show season, off to Sara Simons clinic, then her first horse show where she earned APHA points in color and hunter saddle classes.
She then came home to get some outside miles, did some cattle work and prepared for her mountain trip to Kananaskis, where she learned an awful lot of valuable skills in a short amount of time. Despite the passing of my mom in June and a knee injury she sustained in July, we still got her very first trail challenge where she won Junior in hand and placed very well amoungst more seasoned horses and earned her first trail challenge points. She seems to handle whatever I could throw at her with ease…from the APHA show pen, mountain ledges, swimming in the South Saskatchewan river, to some cattle work and trail challenges.
“Raina” is a very seasoned 4 YO with a ton of exposure and confidence. Already proving to be a trustworthy mountain horse after our 2020 backcountry trip to Kananaskis.
2020 came to a screaching halt with covid restrictions all over the province for our equine community. Events and shows were cancelled and plans put on hold. Raina and I still did some practicing at the horsepark to prepare for out mountain trip to Kananaskis the end of July. The brave little filly did not dissapoint. We spent 5 days and 4 nights in the backcountry together. It was an incredible opportunity and we saw some amazing sights. So grateful to have this talented and skilled little filly underneath me on some very challenging terrain. The path less travelled certainly was worth the effort. Finding pristine mountain lake untouched by motors and machines. 2 legs or 4 legs is the only way to access these incredible sights. My kind of heaven.
PRR Pistol Packn Zippo
2015 Sorrel Tovero Gelding
Owned, Trained and shown by amatuer owner, Stephanie Charlton, Middle Lake, Saskatchewan
Dam: Paint Me Sweetly X Paint Me Zippo
Sire: Pistol Packin Frekles
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.
PRR Sheza Hot Pistol
2014 Bay Tobiano Filly
Owned, loved and shown by Corrine Toronchuk, Thorhild, Alberta.
Dam: Sheza Hot Petitie by Petite Lord
Sire: Pistol Packin Frekles
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.
Hats off my friend, you are an inspiration to anyone thinking they are too old to learn a new trick.
PRR Dreamn of Pistols
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.
