Equitana Sydney 2011 – Breed Parade + Double Dan Horsemanship
About the Equitana event: in Australia is the most anticipated annual equine event of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere attracting over 50,000 visitors per event. It has four days of everything equine featuring horses, Olympic gold medallists, world renowned educators, aussie cowboys, an elite equine competition program and over 350 exhibitors making up the largest equine shopping spree in Australia.
The breed parade and the “double dans” were my favourite, here are some of my favorite pictures I took:

At breed parade you can see different breeds in action. Here the breed associations, societies and studs exhibit their stallions, mares and offspring.
Double Dan Horsemanship
Was a special guest at Equitana 2011 and they showcased the full team of preformance horses that have made it what it is today. Entertainment, education and training is what they are all about. This year the Double Dans presented topics that range from working with the young horse through to refnement of the older preformance horse, desensitising nervous horses to foreign obstacles, sounds and audiences.
