Most horse owners attending Steve's 3-4 day clinics do not aspire to become horse trainers, but simply wish to improve the relationship they have with their own horse.  Whether to overcome fears, gain confidence, or just become an all around better leader for their horse, participants leave Steve's clinics empowered and more excited about horse ownership.

Steve travels to any location where there are enough people wanting and willing to learn better horsemanship.  If you don't see a location close to you already, reach out to us about hosting.

Rother Horsemanship

The equine experience of a lifetime!  Join Steve Rother at his ranch in northeast Washington for immersion into horsemanship.  Horse Creek Ranch gives you the perfect location for fun and education.  Both the 3 and 5 day camps offer you the opportunity develop a better partnership with your horse.  The camps are kept small to ensure lots of personal instruction from Steve and it often feels more like friends and family spending time with horses.  At the end of camp you will head home with new and exciting concepts of how to communicate with your horse; allowing you to continue to build a bond based on respect and understanding.

Saddle Testimonials

"These saddles have been the best investment I have ever made for myself and my horses. With other saddles I used to lose a lot of training time due to soreness in myself and my horses. The Flex Tree in this saddle keeps us both feeling great, and allows for freer movement, which makes our rides more enjoyable. Issues such as balance, soreness, and discomfort are prevented before they even have a chance to begin."


"Love lovelove my saddle!!! It’s the most comfortable saddle I have ever ridden in and it fits multiple horses so perfectly. On top of that it’s the most beautiful saddle, I get compliments on it everywhere I go."

~Emily P

"The most comfortable saddle I’ve had the pleasure of riding and the craftmanship is outstanding!!"

~Erika S.

"I love my saddle!! I could never ride more than a couple of hours before my knees hurt – with this saddle – I can ride all day and no pain!! It fits both my horses too. Love it!"

~Elisa D.

"The biggest reason I love my Rother Continental Saddle is because my hard to fit horse is finally comfortable and loves it too! We’ve gone through countless other makes and models from treed to treeless looking for The One before Steve introduced us to this one, and this one is it! The second reason is it's comfort to me. The nubuck seat provides security, the low profile pommel offers openness and I can ride for hours without knee pain. I was able to custom order the tooling, conchos, skirt size and color to give the exact look I wanted. They even special made the matching breast collar to fit my little Indian pony. These saddles come in a high quality leather that needs no breaking in and it doesn't squeak! Thank you Steve for introducing us to this wonderful saddle!"

~Lorri C.

"I absolutely love my saddle. It is comfortable for both me and my horse. It’s beautiful!!! I was able to customize it exactly how I wanted it with the designs. They even put the designs on the breastcollar and rear cinch! I can ride in this saddle for hours and not feel sore and my horse seems to really enjoy being ridden now instead of having irritating ears. I love that this saddle will last me forever! I’d sure love another though so my family could have one to use as well!"

~Colleen G.

"I love my new Rother saddle it fits my horse like a dream and I am super comfortable in it I could ride all day!"

~Susan B.

"I was sold on the quality, comfort, security, and fit for my horse and I .... which is why I have two of these saddles now."

~Peggy R.

"It is super comfortable for everything from trails to sorting & penning! And pretty too!!"

~Tamara B.

"I absolutely adore my Rother Continental saddle. I love that it fits me and my horse and is super comfortable! I started out as an English rider because I could not find a western saddle that fit me until I rode in a continental at a Rother clinic, it was love at first ride when I had to give it back I ended up buying one right then and there. I can ride all day and not be saddle sore, and my horse can go all day and be comfortable. The pre-turned stirrups are great! Best saddle I have ever purchased! Bye bye knee pain."

~Ayri N.

"I absolutely love my saddle for several reasons. It fits a variety of horses nicely. The saddle is also very comfortable for the rider. The pre-turned stirrups are stellar! My sister loved my saddle so much she bought her own. And I loved Jan L.'s saddle so much I bought mine! And thank you Steve for this opportunity!"


"Couldn’t find a picture without someone one in it because it’s so comfortable. It rode like it was broken in on day one and it’s the only one I’ve had that fits all of my horses."

~Jan L
