Keen Behringer


Welcome,

I’m Keen Behringer, a professional horse trainer, wife and mother of two. I run a public riding and training operation in central Wisconsin. Oh, and I have a background in drawing and fine art. I’m on a journey of personal growth trying to find balance meanwhile juggling it all. Sometimes it’s messy, sometimes it’s funny, sometimes all you can do is start again tomorrow!

I fill my days with enough work to keep a team of ten men busy. I never shy away from labor and I think at this point, my blood is made primarily of coffee. I am raising my girls here at Sublime Saddlebreds LLC. They run and play in the dirt while I work horses, foal out mares and manage the farm.

I started this blog as a place to share my love for horses. I’ve come to appreciate a horse’s ability to improve a persons overall mental health and character. I’m partial to particularly American Saddlebreds, but any horse will do. I needed a place to be able to package my talents for teaching, writing, art and inspiration in one place. As if running farm, managing a family, maintaining a marriage and a business wasn’t enough, right?

I grew up in Upstate New York. As a late teenager I left, becoming somewhat of a gypsy for many years. I was traveling the world taking riding jobs and internships through college and beyond. I focused all of my effort into becoming a top horse rider and trainer. Now in my thirties and settled with a family, I want to share my journey up to this point. Hopefully I can inspire some young, horse enthusiasts, to keep climbing the ladder.

The road I’ve traveled has been wild. It’s been full of things you just can’t make up. I have had tough rides, bad falls, and huge disappointments. I’ve also experienced greatness and met some AMAZING people along the way. Somehow it has all guided me to a path of personal growth, constantly challenging myself to be the best human/mother/trainer/wife/business owner/artist I can be.

So follow along see what you can apply to your own journey… And if you’re on the journey aboard a Saddlebred that’s even better!

I hope you love it!
