The Consumate Professional
Ask anyone who’s been around for awhile about Keith, and they’re most likely say he’s quiet, he’s determined, and he’s one-hell-of-a horsemen. Starting from a young age, Keith has been on horseback. Whether it was on his pony’s back flying around the field, or guiding Jaborr’s Impack++ to his countless titles, Keith has always been most comfortable on a horse’s back.
Quality Horse Training with Patience, and Kindness
Starting from a young age, Keith has been around horses. He started as most kids do, on his parents farm with some unruly ponies, and a will to tame them.
At the tender age of 15 he went to live and work with the famed horse trainer, Red Beyer. Beyer not only taught him the tricks of the trade, but tought him persistence, hard work, and how to be a showman.
Onward and Upward
After his time with Red, Keith went to work for several local breeders, and eventually moved to Louisiana to work for the Baileys. This started the long relationship with Lauren and her family that lead to countless national championships.
After his time in Louisiana, Keith traveled north to Minnesota to work for Cedar Ridge Farm. It was here that he was exposed to the wonderful Ames family, and continued to work there for 6 years and amass countless Scottsdale and National Titles. It was also here that he became partners with the famed Jaborrs Impack++/, aka Gus, and the rest is history.
After Gus was sold to Wolf Springs Ranch, Keith was offered the opportunity to follow him there and work for Tom Redmond. While he was sad to leave the comfort of Cedar Ridge, he was excited about the opportunities that await at Wolf Springs Ranch.
Gus and Keith continued their winning ways for the Redmond family and Gus even expanded himself as an amateur horse. While his time at Wolf Srings was valuable, he made the decision after 3 years, to go back to Missouri and go out on his own.
Soon Tracy Performance Horses was born in Springfield, Missouri where it ran a successful NRHA, AQHA, and Arabian training center.
