Like most field trialer's Ron started at weekend trials with the help of professional trainer Ken Tolbert, This relationship developed a sound team of pointers with the Eboga prefix that could win. This challenged Ron to the next level, of participating in Classics and Championships.

Ron's most two noted winners were Eboga Slick Deal who was a Runner-Up NBHA National Open Champion, Winner of the NBHA Open Invitational and Dog of the Year award winner. Eboga Cracker Jack won the NBHA national Championship in 2007 and in 2008 won the NBHA Free-For-All Champion ship and was Runner-Up of the Open National Championship.
