"In riding a horse, we borrow freedom."
- Helen Thompson
2015 Horse of the Year
Duke is a draft "pony"; Haflingers are called ponies even though they can be horse-sized. Because he is a draft horse, he can carry heavier riders and since he is shorter than most draft horses, he is the perfect height to use for wheelchair mount riders.
Duke was donated by Candy Shoaff in 2013.
