Longstride Training Center is a full service equine boarding and training operation located in Florida's horse country. Trainers Bill and Kim Deaton have over forty years of experience working with thoroughbreds. We are dedicated to excellence and will work hard for you and your horses!



Personal attention and innovative training prepare your horse for greatness.

At Longstride Training Center, we focus on developing the young racehorse physically and mentally for optimal career performance. Our proven yearling and two-year old program is designed to progressively remodel bone density using criteria established by the research of Dr. John Nunamaker at the New Bolton Center in Pennsylvania. Soft tissue maturity, cardiovascular strength and muscle growth are side effects of the remodeling process. The weekly routine of progressive loading results in racehorses who are mentally relaxed and can concentrate on competition with a safe and intellectual attitude. Our goal is to produce tough, competitive and long lasting racehorses. We are committed to making your horse reach his full potential. Let our team work for you!
