BINGHAMTON (WBNG) -- A new horse training facility has opened its doors in Broome County.

“We want everybody who comes here to enjoy the horses and be happy,” said AK Performance and Training Horses Trainer Alycia Kinter. “This could be their safe place. Say they have a traumatic experience. This can be a healing opportunity, therapy. We want everyone who comes through our doors whether they’re young, old, show, or trail-riders to just love horses.”

Kinter said the facility offers a variety of programs to all types of riders; Including English and Western, hunter jumper lessons and barrel racing.

“We serve adults and children ages 5 and up. We do some camps and we are going to put together some summer camps,” Kinter said. “And you know, general horsemanship and absolutely show opportunities as well.”

Kinter has been riding for as long as she can remember, and helping to train other riders and horses in Binghamton is in her blood.

“I’m originally from Binghamton. I grew up on a farm which is located on Lathrop Road. I grew up on the 350 acres up there. My mother ran the boarding facility and we had a wonderful trainer. I dabbled into some other careers and I ended back In Binghamton after 13 years gone exploring the United States and decided we’re going to put together a show facility - and that’s what we did,” she said.

As of right now, AK Performance and Training Horses has 14 horses with more on the way.

The facility also has some stalls open to boarders.

Kinter said her goal is to show riders that horses can be a part of day-to-day life - even through adulthood.

“To see them just happy; You can sometimes see the anxiety and the stuff just melt away with the people, and that’s what I enjoy. It’s not only the horses being happy to see me every day, but clients coming back because they truly enjoy and they feel safe here.”

The facility is located at 751 Dimmock Hill Rd. in Binghamton.
