Caithness Rainchaser

(Loewenherz  x Sarah Su )

Loewenherz is also the sire of Dunstan Dolly (Katie McVean), and Scherzo (Soo Wells).

Rainchaser is a very upstanding stallion, currently 17.1hh. He has big, bold athletic forward movement and good length of rein. He has outstanding conformation and presence, and an impeccable temperament. He is showing a natural jumping ability.

Rainchaser (or Arnie - short for Arnold Schwarznegger) was broken in by Julian Spark of North Canterbury. He was then brought on under professional European trainer Anna Ringbourne.

He has been under saddle for 2-3 weeks with Archie and Lorraine Ward-Smith. They both find him showing outstanding attitude towards his work and a pleasure to have around. Archie has had some pleasurable times riding him in dressage and jumping.

Arnie is a pleasure to work with. His temperament is impeccable, so much so that when covering mares he is called 'The Winer and Diner'.Arnie is crossing well with the NZ TB. His stock will mature from about 16.2hh to 17hh. His youngstock, the oldest of whom are four, have exceptional natures. They are scopey with strong bold athletic forward movement and are showing amazing jumping ability. We feel his progeny will excel in eventing, show jumping and dressage.

Aleshia and David have had Arnie for the last 12 months and have been competing him throughout NZ. They have had some great results and a wonderful time with him. They really enjoy having him around and working with him as well. We are all looking forward to this new season with Aleshia riding him again.

All the best for this season.
