Steva grew up riding Thoroughbreds in central Serbia. He rode his first race at 15 and quickly began traveling across the former Yugoslavian states to compete professionally. In 2006, Steva came to the United States to diversify his experience as a horseman. His classic, sympathetic style of riding earned him a small following and in 2010 he began riding races full time in the United States. As of fall 2015, Steva is the stable manager for Djuric Sporthorses.
