Ragtime Went Platinum, known as "Pearl" here at the ranch, is one of the smoothest horses any of us have ever ridden. Pearl's gait requires zero effort on her rider's part; ask her to move out and she gets right into that glide ride. Riding Pearl is like riding your very own magic flying carpet. Her sire is Dude's Ragtime Man, who was a prolific sire in Alberta for many years. He put great horses on the ground, many of whom were extremely competitive in TWHAWC and AWHA shows. A quick cruise through the Canadian Registry of the Tennessee Walking Horse will show you how many of his progeny have gone on to get their Gold Awards, including Ragtime himself. These horses are incredibly hardy with strong bone and good minds; Pearl is no exception. Many of his daughters have gone on to be excellent broodmares.
We bought Pearl in the spring of 2020, she will be 10 years old in the spring of 2021. She had been lightly started as a five year old but otherwise left to her own devices for the following years. Pearl fell into the groove very quickly and is a pleasure to work with. She has done a lot of arena work this summer with us, including obstacles and a few trail rides. Pearl rides with the dogs zipping around her. She is easy to catch, very good for the farrier, loads in the trailer and ties without issue. Pearl is currently in our winter program and will be pulling sleds, ski-joring and blazing trails through the snow just to name a few. Pearl will be available to the public in the spring of 2021. If you would like to secure Pearl for yourself, please contact us for more information such as a copy of our purchase agreement and deposit details.
