La Plata Arabian Stud is profoundly sad to announce the death of its founder and owner, Steve Doran.  

Steve will always be remembered by his exceptional eye for Arabian breeding stock, but mostly for his kindness and gentle spirit.  He has mentored many Arabian breeders through the years, and has made his mark with the beautiful foals produced by his vision.  

I will never forget Steve’s love for his horses, and the generosity and goodwill he brought to this world.

Rest in Peace, my friend.
