Jon was raised with his three brothers by their father on the family Ranch in Idaho. Jon's Dad was the legendary, horse trainer and NRCHA Hall of Fame member, Jim Roeser. Jim, a Professional Bronc rider qualified for the first five National Finals Rodeos. The same drive and enthusiasm that made Jim one of the top saddle bronc riders in the country be would now be channeled into a new passion, Reined Cow Horses.
Horses were a way of life for the Roeser's. Jon discovered early on, that they had an instinctive talent and feel. Training became a natural progression and Jon quickly found his foundation and talent evolving into a passion of his own.
In 1982, Jon moved to California with one goal in mind, to transform his passion into a career. One of the stops on Jon's career tour was apprenticing under another great horseman, Greg Ward. Eventually, Jon branched out on his own. Jon's journey continued to be a success as he built his own Ranch, Jon Roeser Training Stables. Jon's unmatched ability to combine the early traditions of his father with his own unique talent has proven him to be one of the top reined cow horse trainers in the World. Jon has earned over 20 World Champion Titles, and the World's Greatest Horseman Title. Jon was presented the Million Dollar Rider award in 2006 was inducted into the National Reined Cow Horse Hall of Fame in 2019!
Jon and his wife Tanya live on their Ranch and Training Facility in Kuna, Idaho.
At Jon Roeser Training Stables, we believe you should treat a horse the way you like to be treated.
Jon's foundation came with true horsemanship, understanding and preserving the horses mind and body. Because our program
is soft and consistent lessening the chance of injury, many of the horses trained on our Ranch proceed to be great show horses
with career longevity.
Jon has been breeding, training and showing horses for over 30 years. The ability to turn his passion into a career has landed
Jon as one of the top reined cow horse trainers in the world.
In 2019, Jon's career earnings in cow horse and cutting topped $1.8 million!
"We don't intimidate or over school our horses to avoid injury. I believe there has to be a balance, so when you ask something of the horse,
he is willing to give it to you.
You have to know when to
quit, when to push and
when to back off".
"Above all, let a horse be a horse".
