2012: WPCA Equine Outfit of Excellence Champion Right Wheeler
The 2012 Equine Outfit of Excellence Champion Right Wheeler is Evan Salmond's DJ. This 7 year old bay horse was bought in the fall of 2007 out of Winnipeg as an unraced 2 year old with an injury. After given the necessary time to heal and recover, DJ was initially slated as an outriding horse, before finding his place on the wagon. The switch proved effective as DJ developed into a tough and durable wheeler with a lot of run, and played a big part in Evan qualifying for his first Calgary stampede in 2013.
