Lou and Vicki Doyle, breeders of the stallion QR Marc who has become an international sensation, have been actively involved in the Arabian horse business for 17 years. Quail Ridge Arabians is located in Gilroy, California. They started a breeding program 11 years ago with the purchase of the mare Kouream De Ment. She was in foal to Magic Dream CAHR and 3 months later presented them with their first foal, a gorgeous bay colt that they named QR Excel. QR Excel went on to become the 1999 Italian National Champion and the 2000 US and Canadian Reserve National Champion Stallion.
