Ptarmigan is by Hideawayâ€™s Hustler, out of Merganser. Her sire was an upper level event horse and represented the US at the Pan Am Games. This mare is a talented horse with a huge jump and very balanced, expressive gaits. Her canter is super uphill and powerful. She is soft and responsive and is sensitive and forward without being hot. She is also a safe ride- you can go on a looping rein all day and she is not a spooky, rebellious, or hot horse. Goes in a snaffle and you can hop on this horse after weeks off without lunging. She is an easy keeper, and she clips, ties, hauls, bathes, and stands for the farrier. No soundness issues. She will make someone an amazing partner.
