HIGHLANDER TRAINING CENTER

FORGING CHAMPIONS

Realizing Your Horse’s Potential

Experienced, Seasoned and Successful Trainers

Convenient Texas Training Facility

State of the art Fitness & Therapy Center

Breaking, Training, Preparing and Caring for your racing thoroughbreds.

Highlander Training Center rests on 189 acres near Sulphur Springs, Texas, 80 miles east of Dallas. Highlander was founded on the core principle of forging champions. 

The three Highlander resident trainers have developed and cared for many top-quality stakes horses and are also highly respected throughout the country for their ability to break and provide early conditioning for young horses just starting their careers. We also have expertise in physical rehabilitation for horses coming off injuries or that just need a break from the rigors of racing. 

Highlander Training Center sits within easy shipping distance of nine major racetracks, and we regularly ship horses to tracks in Kentucky, New York and across the country.

​At Highlander Training Center, we strive to produce winning horses through meticulous horsemanship, carefully balanced nutrition, complete veterinary diagnostics & care, and attention to detail. Our riders and grooms are also experienced professionals focused on bringing each individual horse to its maximum potential. 

With more than 500 graduate winners in the most recent 36 months, our proven approach to breaking and training provides each horse a solid mental & physical foundation and what we believe is a competitive advantage when they get to the track.

We are also uniquely equipped to give older horses a break from the rigors of racing and bring them back to their peak of mental and physical preparedness. Highlander offers 11 large pastures as well as 16 paddocks and turn-out pens for layups and turn-outs. We then utilize our proven training and horsemanship skills along with our Fitness & Therapy Center modalities for a fresh and fit return to the races. 

 

We invite you to visit us at Highlander Training Center, meet our team and explore the possibilities of incorporating Highlander into your racing program.
