Dan James

Born in Queensland Australia on a small cattle farm, Dan James 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 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”. Dan will be featuring his “Liberty Training” methods throughout Equifest 2019.
