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, by god do 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 words about what we think of this amazing horse, but we thought that 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.
