Rob Zimmerman has been involved in the livestock industry since childhood. Working most of his life as a farmer/rancher in southeast Idaho, he gained his understanding of horses in a working relationship. As a young man, he raised, competed, and judged cattle through the 4-H program. This transitioned naturally into working horses with cattle and training them for a job. Rob started his professional horse training career working with Doug Milholland, one of the leading reining trainers in the United States. He has developed a method of training that is for everyone-regardless of riding discipline or experience. Rob combines his own natural talent and unique ability of reading a horse, with a safe, progressive and productive training program, to bring about the desired results of having not only a respectful and safe horse, but a willing partner. He currently owns South Ridge Farms a premier training and boarding facility in Ridgefield, WA which he designed and built himself. In the last couple years Rob has become involved in training horses and riders for the exciting new sport of Working Equitation.
