Waffle is a 21 year old Belgian Draft X Quarter Horse. Originally trained in dressage, he was later trained as a hunter. In 2005, he successfully competed in the IHJA “B” circuit with Julie. He even earned enough points to place in the end of the year standings in all of his divisions!
In 2009, Waffle’s owners decided to move him to Double Lucky Ranch and still considers this one of the best decisions ever made on this horse’s behalf. He thrives on the all-day turnout and seems much happier enjoying this lifestyle. Since coming to Double Lucky Ranch, he has carried many beginner riders and is memorable for his large size and gentle disposition. From children at birthday parties to adults who prefer their ages to be withheld, he is always willing to give someone a ride and give them a reason to love, not fear, riding a gentle giant and horses in general.
Waffle is truly an “all-around” horse, and can now be ridden on trails, English, Western, bareback, you name it, and he is willing to try it! In 2011, Waffle and Julie went to many local open shows in the area and did reasonably well showing in hunters, English, and Western classes. Regardless of his ribbons, everyone recognized and loved him. He quickly became a star in the arena!
Waffle is currently enjoying life at Double Lucky Ranch, spending all day outside, receiving the best of care, and going for leisurely trail rides. He hopes to enjoy many more years here livin’ the good life!
