Dan Steers resides in Australia and runs DDH down under for us.
Growing up in Western Australia Dan Steers first discovered his love for horses in his early teens; at 15 he began working for master farrier and horseman Pete Webber developing his horsemanship and farrier skills. At 17, Steers began working for cutting trainer, Corry Holden, where he spent months training horses and was quickly recognized for his achievements in the show ring. Before long he was conducting regular horsemanship clinics and became highly respected for his skills, talent and ability to communicate.
In 2008, Steers joined his good friend, Dan James, 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. Steers married Pia in 2010 and has become an integral part of the Double Dan team as head veterinarian, entertainer and clinician. In 2014 Dan and Pia welcomed thier newborn daughter into the family.
Taking the 2012 Mane Event in Chilliwack, British Columbia by storm Steers won his first Trainer’s Challenge Colt Starting title. Steers is not only a powerful clinician; he also trains and competes at the highest level of campdrafting and Stock horse futurities in Australia.
Starting and training horses with the Double Dan Horsemanship method and showcasing their talents is Steers’ true passion. By combining education and entertainment Steers electrifies crowds around the world.
