Talk to anyone about horsemanship and Australia and there is one name that always comes up… the Double Dans. 

The much anticipated masterclass will cover the art of horsemanship including the principle of effective communication between horses and humans. It will help riders turn a stiff, heavy and unwilling horse into a soft, supple and cooperative partner. Their goal is simple – to help create well rounded horses that can go on to do any discipline or job and achieve the perfect equine relationship. 

Their combined depth of knowledge and experience and comfortable, easy-going way of delivery make the masterclass a must for all.
