Meet Stephen

Riding into the competition with the “mile high advantage,” Stephen Heitmann is a Montana native who now calls Colorado home. Raised primarily by his deaf mom while his military father was away, she, a respected horse trainer, ignited Stephen’s passion for a life of cowboyin’. As an adult, he has worked on several large-scale operations, learning what it takes to live the lifestyle from working alongside rugged, old-school cowboys and hardworking men. Soon to be married, Stephen gets to do what he loves every day, working as a cowhand, farrier, and horse trainer.
