3 Diamonds Farm is proud to present for a client: Breakfast in Bed! Lovingly known in the barn as Waffles, this is an adorable 9 year old, 13.1hh Welsh cross sport pony gelding. A really flashy buckskin color with dapples and four white socks! Waffles is built really well for such a cute pony. Despite being started just a year ago, by a kid, Waffles is a safe and talented hunter/jumper already. And he has a fantastic jump with scope for days! While Waffles is already a jack of many trades, he would make a safe and talented mount for a number of different riders. Currently, he teaches lessons to petite adults and children as young as three years old!
Waffles is currently at a hunter/jumper barn, where he teaches lessons, goes to shows, and serves as pony extraordinaire. He has very nice gaits at the walk, trot, and canter. Waffles is jumping courses with ease, recently competing at the Winston National in the 0.65m jumpers successfully. At home, he is schooling up to 2’3” with scope for more! We see Waffles easily moving up to a 2’7” jump height with more time and training. Waffles is happy to pack lesson kids around for lessons or even teach smaller kids on the lunge line. Very forgiving of rider mistakes! Waffles is the same pony day after day, whether he is ridden every day or sits for a month. He happily ponies other ponies and horses, not caring if they are double his size! Waffles is the same in the ring or field. He even recently tried dressage for the first time and showed that he could be an event pony in the making! Loves jumping logs and other natural obstacles out in the field, so already started gaining cross country experience, which would also make him ideal for foxhunting. No stop in this pony either! And best of all, Waffles almost has a solid auto lead change!
In the barn, Waffles is easy, easy, easy! He has the sweetest, most loving pet personality. Loves attention and grooming. Stands perfectly on the cross ties for tacking and baths. Super easy in any turnout group. Stands nicely for the vet and farrier. Absolutely perfect ground manners. Hops right on the trailer for all his adventures. No prep needed. No naughtiness. No spook. Nothing. This is a nice pony. No maintenance either. He is currently barefoot and has great feet too! A very quiet and safe ride. Waffles is happy to go on bareback hacks, alone or with a group, just as quietly as he does all his other jobs. The only vice Waffles has is that he absolutely hates clippers. So, if he needs to be clipped for any reason, he will definitely require sedation to take the edge off. Other than that, he is the most perfect pony ever.
If you are looking for a sweet, easy, and safe sport pony, Waffles is the one you have been looking for! He can teach lessons and go right out in the show ring with any petite rider. While Waffles could continue on in his current career as hunter/jumper, he could easily become a dressage, eventing, or foxhunting mount too. Since Waffles is so good at so many things, he could just continue and be an all-around pony for a child or even a small adult. This is the incredible sport pony you have been searching for! A pony unicorn! For more information and videos, and to set up a time to meet Waffles, please contact 3 Diamonds Farm at [email protected].
Waffles is located at a private farm in Leesburg, Virginia.
