    Anybody know Ron Anderson?

    Hello everyone,

    I was just wondering if anyone here knows the horse trainer Ron Anderson, or has heard of him. I guess he's a famous horse trainer in Alberta (Canada). I think he's somewhere around Calgary, too. I'm just wondering if he's any good, and what he specializes in and all that stuff. He trained Tonto Wink

    I have no idea what kind of trainer he is, but I've seen him a few times as an announcer/commentator at Spruce Meadow's for the Battle of the Breeds, as well as at the Select Quarter Horse Sale in Edmonton at the Canadian Finals Rodeo.

    Sorry I couldn't be more help, but I did find this:

    Ron Anderson is a very entertaining announcer, hired for alot of shows like reining or cutting, ect, and also to read pedigrees at auction sales. I can't say I know what his training skills are like with horses although he seems to get some results on the ARCHA. Oh and he was horseperson of the year a few years ago according to Northern Horse Review.

    I can see his place from my front door, lol. Saying that, I don't know him overly well, he has shown up at a few community functions and gymkhanas. He also writes an article for the Horses All paper. He's a nice guy, but I am not terribly into western so I wouldn't really know a whole lot more. Maybe I should invite him over for coffee and interogate him...just a thought:D

    I've sent some horses to the trainer that lived next to him when he was over in Springbank - he's since moved from there, hasn't he?

    He's hilarious. I've shown and scribed at shows where he is the announcer. He makes chicken noises at the judges (and scribed) over the walkies if we flinch when a particularly out of control reiner veers in our direction. Shocked Smile Smirk

    He's the only cowboy type I know that wears his high heeled orange upper boots on the outside of his jeans and drives a red volvo bug. ROFL

    If you did talk to him, ask him if he remembers a "Chomper". APHA overo, chestnut... four white stockings... Most likely trained 5-6 years ago, but I'm not sure. If he does know this horse, then I might call him just to find out more about Tonto. (Tonto's name back then was Chomper, just to clarify... I don't know who changed it, but the breeder has told me that it was Chomper when she sent him to Ron to be trained!
