Embry Curry

The ApHC just received word today that Embry Curry, long time member and manager of the Sheltowee Trail Ride, passed away Wed afternoon June 18th. Additional information is welcome. We’ll post a remembrance very soon.

For those of you in the trail riding community, you know what a devoted Appaloosa guy Embry was. He had a unique and mostly charming style that endeared him to anyone who expressed even the slightest interest in our breed and in riding the trails. He struck me as one of those people you could learn a lot from, either on purpose or by accident. I know we’ll all miss him, but his spirit will be a part of the ApHC Trail Program for a long time.

    Sorry to hear the passing of a real great guy.
    Years ago he was involved in putting on Appaloosa Regional
    horse shows in Lexington, KY. He always made you feel welcome.
    It was the same welcome when you met him on the Sheltowee Trail Ride. Embry made the trail ride what it is.
    If ever their was a nice person it was Embry.
    I Want his family to know we are thinking of them.

    What a loss to the Appaloosa breed and trail riders and attendees of the Sheltowee. Embry made the ride an event that we will long remember with his witt, charm, and way of making everyone feel welcome. Last year he sang around the campfire – and it was something. He will always ride the Sheltowee with us.
