“Shooter is a great-minded gelding. He will make a great all around horse. He doesn't think outside the box. He rides just how he looks, very pleasant horse to have in the barn.” - Kristin Pokluda

“I've been around and handled Shooter several times now. He is very easy to get along with, would make a great horse for a training program or someone that does their own training and shows non-pro. He truly is very genuine and honest and loves people.” - Julie Voge

Shooter was bred and raised by Bruce Walquist.  He was started as a 2 year old by Bruce and Craig and they did all of the riding on him.  Ridden for one week by Kristin Pokluda to make the video provided.
