Training

Keyser Farm’s goal is to train customer’s horses with supreme care and professionalism. This is accomplished through an established routine for each horse so that he/she quickly learns what is expected of them. This encourages a more willing frame of mind for learning and participation from our horses in training. Our technique provides the finest trained Paint horses available for excellent riding experiences in or out of the show ring.

Horses in training are ridden on a regular, rotating schedule with at least 4-5 rides each per week. Our customers are invited once per week to see their horse being ridden and evaluate his/her progress. Our top-notch facility includes 29 matted, boxed stalls in our heated barn, with indoor bathing facilities. Stalls are cleaned daily and horses are grained, fed and watered twice daily. Horses in training are also turned out when weather permits. In colder winter months, horses are rotated for turn out in the indoor arena for exercise. The monthly training fee is $845.
