Colt Starting 5-Day Camp – Horse Creek Ranch, Hunters, WA

This is a NEW and EXCITING camp to be offered at Horse Creek Ranch!

Learn the methods that Steve uses when starting all of his young horses; the same methods he used in countless colt starting challenges and competitions!

Bring your youngster or other ‘green’ horse and join us at Horse Creek Ranch as Steve guides you through the fundamentals of building a strong foundation with your horse.  This fun and educational camp is a learning event of a lifetime.  Horse Creek Ranch will be your home for at least 5 days as Steve leads you to a higher level of understanding and communication with your horse.  The things that you learn during your stay at the ranch will permanently change the way that you handle horses, in a positive way. This is a small group atmosphere that will ensure lots of personal instruction from Steve.


Some, but definitely not all, of the things you will learn are:

  • How to start and develop a horse correctly from the beginning.
  • Building a strong foundation.
  • Raising the horse you want to ride.
  • The confidence to overcome fears.
  • Tools to keep your horse calm, curious, and respectful.
  • Feel and timing to increase your horse’s “try”.
  • Common mistakes of both the horse and rider.
  • How to think from a horse’s point of view.
  • What to do when your horse does the unexpected.
  • How to accomplish incredible things with your horse.
  • Key exercises to unlock your horse’s potential.

At the end of the camp, you will head home with new and exciting concepts of how to communicate with your horse and how to give them purpose; allowing you to continue to build a relationship based on respect and understanding.

Horse Creek Ranch was created in order to provide a much greater learning experience for riders from all over the world. Here at the ranch we are able to immerse people and horses in a way that is much more related to real life and real situations.  By doing this we are able to produce a much deeper and more effective relationship between horse and rider.

Horse Creek Ranch is located in NE Washington, about 1.5 hours NW of Spokane. At the ranch we provide both indoor and outdoor arenas and round pens, corrals and stalls for guest horses, extreme trail courses, creeks, ponds, a lake, waterfall, mountain and open pasture riding, leased horses, and cattle.  Groups are kept to a minimum in order to ensure plenty of one-on-one instruction and a peaceful stay at the ranch.
