Steve has owned and ridden horses for over six decades and served as President of CHAMP from 2011 to 2014. He has served with many organizations supporting all aspects of horse/human relationships. As a State Senator for eight years, he was the voice for horses and passed hallmark legislation protecting the legacy of the wild horse in New Mexico. Steve also served as Vice President and Councilor for the New Mexico Horse Council and was recognized in 2014 as their Horse Person of the Year. His vision and leadership resulted in Corrales being designated the “Horse Capital of New Mexico”. He continues to stay involved in equine activities and to pursue his lifetime goal of being “good enough” for his horses and to deserve them as partners.
