McCurdy's Roan Lightning Rain,
"Rainer" Foaled March 31, 2010
Rainer is a half brother to 88 - a gorgeous blue roan, blue
papered top and bottom registered McCurdy gelding purchased from
Ed McCurdy in Alabama as a 3 year old.
He has had 2 months pro western training
here in TX. Rainer is safe, sound, solid on trails and smooth.

Rainer is also a versatile using horse
with a can do attitude about everything. Extremely calm and
Congratulations to Tammy Kimbrell of
Chunchula, Alabama (outside of Mobil) on her purchase of Rainer!
She flew into DFW and spent 2 full days with us evaluating
Rainer, and his progress with pro trainer Ray Weathered of
Athens with basic Western Pleasure and Trail riding. She
accepted the challenge to Cowgirl Up and see what all Rainer can
do. We were all riding twice a day for 3 hours at a time on 800+
acres at Trace Trails.
Rainer passed all the tests with flying colors, going like a
pro, for a young and green 5 year old. Even in the Texas heat in
sandflats, up hills, thru woods and trails, he was steady,
smooth, calm-- hardly breaking a sweat, with extreme stamina.
But Cajun, Rio, and 88 thought they were all going to die!
Tammy will keep Rainer in training with Steve Foley, reining
pro, western riding, and all around trainer in Mobil, Alabama.
This is her 2nd McCurdy Plantation Horse. We welcome her to the
MPH Association and family. She is excited to attend the Fall
Ride with her horses on Oct 3, 2015 at The Southern Sportsman
Hunting Lodge on Hwy 80 between Selma and Montgomery.
Happy Trails, and see you there!
