Chris Burton, Stacy Westfall and Double Dan Horsemanship
This week’s episode is another gem from the 4 days at EQUITANA Australia 2018 where I was the MC for the VIP super ticket holder event.
This one is a cracker!
On this day I was lucky enough to have Chris Burton who is one of Australia’s best eventers of the modern times. He represented Australia at the 2010, 14 and 18 World Equestrian Games, the London 2012 Olympic Games and the Rio 2016 Olympic games where he won a bronze medal on his young horse Santano II.
Stacy Westfall the super decorated western rider is back again. Her bio is in the previous episode so go back and have a listen to the last episode if you’d like to know more about her.
Then, there are the Double Dans. Dan Steers and Dan James who conduct clinics all around the world and are also great entertainers. Their show includes horsemanship, trick riding, comedy and a whole lot more.
This is one of the moments I will not forget and I will tell this story for years to come. This is the day where one of the top equestrians of the modern times, learned something from a couple of Aussie Cowboys and a woman who rides a western discipline. This shows a strength in Chris Burton and a humbleness to be open to this kind of learning especially in front of a live audience. It also show that no matter who you are, you have value.
Another massive thank you to EQUITANA Australia for giving me the opportunity to MC this event and also record it and broadcast it to you all.
