Your Invitation to Join the International Liberty Horse Association

Dan James double Dan Horsemanship - International Liberty Horse Assn

Not only is Dr Elizabeth James an accomplished doctor, horsewoman and beautiful mother of two. She’s a smart gal for choosing an Aussie husband!

We always joke that we have THIS in common. Elizabeth’s husband, Dan James, while widely known as a skilled horseman, has many accolades. And now, with Elizabeth, he’s a founder of the International Liberty Horse Association!

Dan James - Half of the "Double Dans"

He’s half of Australia’s “Double Dans”. He and the equally talented Dan Steers have received international recognition since forming Double Dan Horsemanship in 2009. Dan James is also the 2012 Winner and this year’s host of The Road to the Horse, a title reserved for the world’s top horse trainers!

And while MY Aussie husband is not a horseman extraordinaire, he IS CEO of Cavallo. And those of you who’ve had the pleasure to meet my husband Greg, know what a fantastic, charming and smart Aussie man he is. Oh, and he tells me, it’s worth saying that these men have all married pretty well also!

Liberty - The State of Being Free

I’ve admired The Double Dans over the years for their wondrous interpretation and empathy of Equus. Dan and Elizabeth were recently at Equine Affaire in Springfield, MA, and we had a chance to catch up.

Greg and I were captivated learning about the James’ innovative, new project, the International Liberty Horse AssociationThe ILHA is a game changer for you, as a rider, to rate your horse and yourself. This opportunity allows you to scale up and be involved in something bigger than individual horse rides.
