Search For A Trainer

Get your horse started with a trainer in your desired activity and support the American Paint Horse Foundation’s youth development program.

Looking for a Trainer?
TrainerIf your horse could use some schooling, please consider our list of American Paint Horse Foundation trainers. They have donated a month of training so your training fee can be applied directly to the Foundation's youth scholarship and development program.

Requests for these trainers are on a first-come/first-served basis and usually only one horse will be placed with each trainer, so don't wait.

The fee is $500 for one month of training, payable to the American Paint Horse Foundation. Please review the list of trainers, complete the form below, and send in with your check or credit card information.  Your remittance will be acknowledged and your contact information sent to your trainer of choice, provided he/she has not yet been contracted.  A confirmation letter will be sent to each of you, and you can contact each other to make the final arrangements.  If the trainer is not available, your money will be refunded.

 

How to secure a trainer
1. Find a trainer from the list below.
2. Fill out the training request form.
3. Send in with your payment to the American Paint Horse Foundation.
