The Keystone’s premier element is the installation of an Arabian Horse EXPERIENCE BARN.  This barn will be open to all spectators visiting the our events and will allow newcomers to get up close and personal with our Arabian Ambassador horses. 

Inaugural Keystone EXPERIENCE Barn, Sponsored by Dr. Nancy O’Reilly, Amazing Horsewoman LLC.


A series of educational stations will be displayed to allow 8-12 people at a time a hands-on educational experience with the Arabian horse. Stations will include: Vet & Farrier demos, painting a horse, grooming & care, photo opps & riding/leadline opportunities.


The adjacent Lugano arena will offer an area for live demonstrations of Arabian versatility and opportunities to meet, touch and ride Arabian horses.


The EXPERIENCE barn will also house Arabian Ambassador horses that will meet all visitors in a hands-on visiting opportunity.


The experience barn will include Children's Games & Engagement activities to entertain children with the Arabian Horse. Merchandise and even Christmas Card photo opportunities with the Arabian Horse.

keystone arabian experience


Keystone Arabian Horse experience is driven by The Arabian Promotional Fund, with a goal of promoting the Arabian horse to those communities outside of our own industry.  What better way is there to accomplish that, than to honor both national and local charities at this event.  

In 2022 we are proud to announce that The Keystone Arabian Experience raised over $50,000 to benefit these worthwhile organizations:

Wounded Warrior Project
Project Hope Ocala
Horses N Heroes of Marion County
