Patrick Swayze, star of "Ghost" and "Dirty Dancing," took on the role of desert horseman in Qatar Friday.

Swayze, covered in sweat and wearing a cowboy hat, was not among the top three to finish the 25-mile Qatar Desert Horse Marathon, in which 39 mostly European and Middle Eastern riders took part in searing heat.

"I'm absolutely amazed and proud and blown away that I got to ride an Arabian horse in the desert. I have achieved my dream," said the actor, who owns an Arabian ranch in California and was in Qatar to attend a horse show.
