Waffles is a 16.2h, 9 year old unraced and untattooed thoroughbred gelding. He was track broke as a two year old but was too slow so he never raced. He then sat in a pasture for 6 years until I bought him in April and restarted him. He has been the easiest horse to work with because he is so smart and willing. He is going WTC and jumping small jumps. He's a big mover with a lot of natural impulsion and uphill movement so he's not for a beginner or a lesson program. An intermediate rider working with a trainer could easily finish him in any direction. He rides calmly on a loose rein and is working on accepting contact. He would excel in eventing, dressage, or jumpers or could do hunters with more training. He is responsive to all aids and goes in a double jointed loose ring bit. He has hacked out around the farm alone and with other horses with no problems. He has absolutely no buck, rear, bolt, or kick. He has free jumped up to 4’ and is doing small courses at 2’-2’6 with scope to go way higher.
Waffles is an easy keeper who stays fat on grass or hay and a ration balancer. He lives outside 24/7 and has lived with mares and geldings with no problems. He stands for grooming and tacking up. He needs front shoes but otherwise has no special maintenance required to stay sound. He has a cosmetic scar on his hind left leg. He's sound with no vices and is ready to be finished in any direction. PPEs are welcome and shipping can be arranged if necessary.
