Click on Photos to Enlarge

The Dispersal Sale of the Estes Arabian Racing stock offers 10 horses of riding age: 3 stallions ages 4 and 5 and 7 mares between the ages of 3 and 8. We are also offering 2 yr olds, a yearling, 6 weanlings, and 1 broodmare. None of the riding age horses have been bred or raced. All of the horses offered can be caught in the pasture, haltered and led, but need further training. They have all been pasture raised, and kept in a hilly pasture with natural water sources, which is great for endurance and competitive trail horses. Even the 4 and 5 yr old stallions are pastured together. They breed for good minds, good legs, strong hindquarters, good withers and laid back shoulders - athletes. All horses are priced from free to $1000. There are many more horses available that are not pictured below - Please call us to discuss the horses and set up a farm visit.


Mare Pasture

Mare & Foal Pasture

Stallion Pasture

We have trained 3 Estes horses who were all easily trained, with good minds.

One was a 9 yr old stallion, Deste Dooley (click to see his photos and videos) with no previous training, who loaded in the trailer for the first time after just 20 minutes of coaxing and walked right in every time after that. He was so easy to work with that after 30 days of training he was being ridden by a 15 yr old girl. Within 6 months she rode him in his first 25 mile AERC ride. In his first 50-mile ride he was ridden as a stallion by a 14 yr old girl, who now owns him – as a great gelding. The 3 sale horses sired by Dooley are Deste Ivegotahemi, Deste Leah Dear and Deste New Hope We also trained Deste Smithwick (click to see his photos and videos) who completed his first 25 mile ride after 60 days training and was also ridden by a Junior rider in one of his endurance rides. After 120 days of training “Smithy” was purchased by a retired woman as her first horse. The other horse, Deste Gotcha , (click to see his photos and videos on the West Texas Arabians website) now owned by West Texas Arabians, an endurance and sport horse farm, as their breeding stallion. The under saddle videos on their website were taken his first day under saddle, 5 years after retiring from the race track, where he was 1999 Texas Race Horse of the Year. His 5 year old son, Deste Gotta Touch is offered for sale.
