Update your lineup for Team USA's WEG reiners! Craig Schmersal will be showing Mister Montana Nic rather than Boom Shernic.
At age 12, Mister Montana Nic, a bay Quarter Horse stallion, is twice as old as any of the other Team USA reining horses. The Quarter Horse stallion has lifetime earnings of more than $136,0000. Want a closer look at him? Look no further than your September issue of Horse&Rider! His powerful sliding stop caught many readers' attention, and now he'll get the world's attention at the World Equestrian Games.
The reining team competition begins tomorrow, and watch for reining coverage and the opening ceremonies on NBC on Sunday, beginning at noon, Eastern time! Also, keep an eye on this blog and Horse&Rider's Facebook page for behind-the-scenes updates next week when I head to Lexington on Tuesday.
