Mimi and Abraxa Make Big News

We are so pleased to see all the coverage that resulted from our news that Schleese Saddlery Service is sponsoring Mimi and that our new Westphalian Studbook e.V. mare, Abraxa, will help facilitate Mimi’s goals of reaching international competition. Thanks to our NBC, CBS affiliates and the Bismarck Tribune for all the fantastic coverage!

Abraxa the TV Star

Abraxa’s importation from Germany to one day serve as Mimi’s international competition horse was the subject of extensive local media coverage, including this package from our NBC affiliate, KFYR-TV. Abraxa is a 2013 black Westphalian mare (Abraxa Stute x Astrix Fidermark) we purchased at auction from Germany with the help of Rhegan White, the Westphalen e.V.’s Director of Sales/Marketing for the USA, Canada & UK. Rhegan ensured we found the right fit and the process went smoothly, start to finish.

Ames Explorer’s New Owner!

Sydney-Chance2We are pleased that Ames Explorer (“Chance”) has a new owner! The family of one of our wonderful young students, Sydney, purchased Chance and they are off to a great start together. See more on their journey together on our PRTC Students page. 

Cupid has new home!

Cupid will now join Carol Welty Poland & PR Thumbelina in MO. It is the best possible home for this 2 year old Half Arabian rescue gelding. Look at his resemblance to Carol’s 20+ years young Thumbelina that she purchased from PRTC many years ago.

Our 2 Premium RPSI Colts in Select Foal Auction

In December 2015, two of PRTC’s highest quality colts were offered for sale in the online RPSI Select Foal Auction.  PR Senator Seagram, a RPSI Gold Premium Colt and Site Champion, was Lot 15. By the hugely successful Hanoverian sire Sinatra Song, Seagram is likely the final and finest foal from our grand dame broodmare, PR Brandywine (purebred Arabian and RPSI Main Mare Book One). Seagram’s movement is spectacular, with an active hind leg that loads and flexes under his body. His front climbs with super scope. PR Statesman Salty (Lot 36) is a Silver Premium RPSI colt with the rare & highly desirable ability to lower his haunches & power out at the trot and canter like a speed boat coming out of the water. There is no doubt that he has uphill balance. Salty is out of our RPSI Main Mare Book One purebred Arabian mare, PR Sun Kyst, and also by Hanoverian Sinatra Song. We are very proud to have produced these two exceptional colts. They are both still available for sale. Visit their web pages for more information.

PR Senator Seagram Wins RPSI Site Champion

PR-Sen-Seagram-site-champWe had a great Rheinland Pfalz-Saar International RPSI foal inspection! PR Senator Seagram was Gold Premium and Site Champion Colt out of a large group of colts! He had an exceptional movement score. The 13 hand PR Statesman Salty was awarded Silver Premium. Salty showed great suspension and scope to his gaits. Both colts are sired by the High Point Hanoverian sire Sinatra Song (Sandro Hit) out of approved Arabian mares that are 3 generations of PRTC breeding. Watch for these colts in the upcoming RPSI foal auction!

Zorro wins 2nd Level National Championship!

Zorro-CAN2015-1Today at Canadian Nationals Wolkenzorro went National Champion Second Level Dressage!!! Anastasia Daxtana missed Reserve by a hair to place 3rd to Zorro. Tana also went Top 10 1st level (and placed 3rd). Plum had a good Training Level test but was edged out by a few tenths of a point in a 25 horse class. Not bad for Tana and Plum since this is the third show ever for them and Zorro continued his roll! Wahoo!
