When I say “nothing on”, I’m talking; no saddle or bridle! What were YOU thinking? In my opinion, a cowboy riding with no saddle and no bridle is much more exciting than what it implies. Most of us MIGHT be brave enough to ride bareback, but no bridle? That’s like driving a race car with no steering wheel OR brakes!
This weekend at the 19th Annual Equifest of Kansas event at the Kansas Expocentre you will have the opportunity to see horseman Dan James and he just might be riding with nothing on!
Australian born Dan James is the 2015 RAM Invitational Freestyle Champion, the 2014 Kentucky Gold Cup Freestyle Reining Champion and 2014 Quarter Horse Congress Freestyle Reining Champion in addition to being featured on “Australia’s Got Talent”and the “Mustang Millionaire” TV series. Needless to say, this cowboy has got it going on!
However, the sign of a true champion is not how many trophies he wins, but how he handles the losses. One year ago, Dan James suffered a accident that almost cost him his leg!
Jim and Rusty from the Walker Daniels Morning show had the pleasure of talking with Dan and asked him to give Jim some advice on getting involved in horses…
Here is Dan’s story of recovery.
