A champion at two and the winner of the first leg of Korea's Triple Crown at three, Doc is all class and he knows it.  But don't let his proud carriage intimidate you, he is all business under saddle and there isn't a harder working horse on the ranch.  He is the kind of horse you can ride anywhere, at any speed, on a loose rein and he will stay at the exact speed you ask him. But if you want gas, you have it!  This horse has afterburners and can run down even the fastest cow in the pasture.  He is a rush to ride!


We could write a lot more about what we think of this amazing horse, but this article written by our good friend, Jen Roytz, for the "Paulick Report", does it best: 


"On a loose rein we rode for hours through fields, up and down the foothills and over trails and service roads. With an uphill build and walk that's more like a march, it was obvious the horse likes to work, but impressive that he only offered what I asked for, never challenging me to do more (or less). We stopped to look out over vistas and walked along cliff edges. Doc Ruel was unflappable.


He stood patiently when I wanted to stop to take photos, had plenty of zip when we booked it through the fields or up hills and was as sure-footed as they come going up and down the undulating terrain. He also didn't flinch when a mule deer jumped out from the woods and crossed our path, nor when a school bus came bouncing down the dirt road we were riding along at one point and I asked him to jump across a fairly large ditch to get away from its path.


When the ride was done, Doc Ruel and the other horses hopped right back into the trailer, as calm as can be. Talk about trail and trailer broke!"
