Dan James was born in Queensland Australia on a small cattle farm and first began his lifelong passion with horses at six weeks old. The family milking goat would suffice until he got his first pony. Starting his first colt in his early teens sparked his hunger to understand more about the horse s thinking patterns. After studying at Longreach Pastoral College, James began traveling the world to gain a better understanding of horses. In 2008, James joined his good friend, Dan Steers, in Western Australia at El Caballo Spanish Horse Centre where they performed together each weekend in the Dan and Dan Show developing their horsemanship techniques. In 2009, Steers and James relocated to New South Wales and Double Dan Horsemanship was born leading both young stars down the Pathway to Liberty. In 2008, James was recognized as a world class colt trainer when he won the Way of the Horse at Equitana Asia Pacific. In 2012, James wowed judges again with his incredible training techniques winning the coveted Road to the Horse International Colt Starting World Champion title. James continues to push the limits of horsemanship and entertainment with eye-opening clinics and exhilarating performances. Helping horse enthusiasts expand their knowledge and understand for the Love of the Horse. Both James and Steers make Stephenville, TX, their American home base.
