Dan James

Double Dan Horsemanship

Scheduled appearances


A competitor, trainer, teacher, and performer, Dan James is setting the horse world on fire. Born on a cattle farm in Queensland, Australia, he began his lifelong passion for horses at an early age, starting his first colt in his teens. James began traveling the world as a student of the horse, developing the methods he uses today as Double Dan Horsemanship with his partner, Dan Steers.

Recognized as a world class performer, James displays a connection with horses that inspires and excites audiences wherever he performs. From the thrill of Roman riding and cracking stock whips set on fire, to provoking emotion with beautiful liberty performances, James and his horses remind us all that through understanding and trust, anything is possible.

As a competitor, James has been a Road to the Horse Champion and a Mustang Million Finalist, and won the “Way of the Horse” at Equitana Asia Pacific. During the Mustang Million, James and the mustang “Punk” were deeply honored to be voted the overall Fan Favorite for an exhilarating display of horsemanship. But to James, competition is not just about winning. It’s about refining skills, improving, and learning.

Dan James is living a dream come true – traveling the world, teaching the Double Dan Horsemanship method, and inspiring audiences with exhilarating performances that showcase what is possible through the understanding, trust, and everlasting love of the horse.
