ABOUT US

Highlander Training Center

MISSION

Highlander Training Center is a premier thoroughbred training facility known throughout the industry for uncompromising standards in training and caring for our horses and where our clients, suppliers and team members are treated with dignity and respect.

FACILITIES

Highlander Training Center rests on 189 acres in Hopkins County near Sulphur Springs, Texas. It is approximately one hour east of Dallas. Highlander was founded on the core principle of forging champions. The combined 80 years of experience among the Highlander trainers have produced over 300 stakes winners over the past 30 years. Highlander Training Center sits within easy shipping distance of nine major racetracks, and plans to expand its facilities to allow for full equine therapy rehabilitation services in 2020. At Highlander Training Center, we strive to produce winning horses through meticulous horsemanship, carefully balanced nutrition, complete veterinary care, and attention to detail.

TRAINERS

Jimmy “Scooter” Dodwell co-founded Highlander Training Center in July of 2017. He immediately began bringing together a skilled team of riders, grooms, and trainers to offer the highest level of horsemanship in developing each individual horse.

For 17 years, Scooter worked with his father, Ed, breaking and training thoroughbreds at Diamond D Ranch. When Ed retired, Scooter assumed his duties as head trainer, which he carried out for 13 years before creating Highlander Training Center. Over the past 30 years, Scooter has developed horses who have won over 300 stakes races, including 2009 Horse of the Year, Rachael Alexandra.
