D Este Dooley
AHR 15.1H Chestnut Arabian

  • Ridden in Endurance as a stallion by a Junior Rider
  • Race Bred, Pasture Raised, Sure Footed
  • Calm, Steady, No-nonsense disposition
  • Not spooky, drinks great from streams and lakes
  • Completed three 25 mile rides, will do a 50 in April 2005

Dooley is entered in the April 2nd 2005 Blue Bonnet 50-Mile Endurance Ride. We plan to geld him April 5th, so he is offered for sale as a gelding. If you are interested in him, but prefer that he be left a stallion, please contact us before the ride.

DEste Dooley is a Polish/Russian cross with a great disposition for endurance. He wasn't put under saddle until the Spring of 2004. Normally a green stallion would need to be ridden by a very experienced adult, but not Dooley. He has been ridden all year by a 15, now 16 yr old girl.

He has perfect ground manners and stands happily tied all night eating and drinking at the endurance rides. He has not exhibited the normal stallion behavior of posturing or announcing his presence. He bathes, clips, loads easily and is well mannered with the vets and farriers. She even rides him side by side, following or leading down the trail with Hank's stallion, Envoy.

Dooley is often the horse we put up front to lead across deep, wide creeks with steep embankments. He has crossed wooden bridges, too. He also isn't bothered by traffic or dogs. One of his rides was the Ft. Worth Skyline ride that started at the Ft. Worth Stockyards, where she rode him down a cobblestone street with traffic, cafes, and bars with loud music, and a lot of bystanders, etc. That ride also required crossing the Trinity River on 8 concrete bridges. Even though he is a mature, race bred horse, perfectly capable of being a front runner, we have started him slow doing middle of the pack 25 mile rides for conditioning and training. He will start in slow 50s this Spring. With his mind set and the way he eats and drinks we think he will make a great multi-day or 100-mile horse.

He has really good bone, sound feet and good conformation. His sire and grandsire did well on the race track. His dam's sire is the well known stallion, *Napitok, imported from the Tersk Stud in Russia who was a winning race horse in Russia and a Champion English Pleasure and Ladies SideSaddle horse in the US. If you really like Dooley and want a Dooley repeat to bring along in a few years, ask us about his two get foaled in 2004 and 2003.
