About the Clinic
Pathway to Liberty clinic series is for the serious horse person and trainer. The liberty horse clinic series is a very unique clinic that can open many opportunities and take your relationship with your horse to a level that you never knew existed. Whether you want to become a movie horse trainer, live show entertainer or maybe just have this unique understanding of how to teach your horse the art of liberty training this is the clinic for you. Note – it’s always very helpful to have attended a ground control clinic or watched Level 1 ground control to help understand the whip cues used. During the clinic, you will learn about mark training and the basics of your horse working around you changing directions as you integrate the cues. We then look at the “stop” this plays a major roll into integrating the rear or lay down. As the day’s progress, we focus on the horses working in a much larger area and others horses to further develop the draw. By the end of the clinic you will start to test you and your horses’ foundation in various situations.
About 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. James first traveled to Hokkaido, Japan to start horses, then to Celina, Texas working for cutting horse trainer, Punk Carter, and back to Australia to work on a cattle station in Western Australia.
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.
