- The laughter and disbelief of ‘Mans First Ride’
- The beautifully choreographed ballet segment ‘Dancing with horses’, where Steve and his 10 year old daughter Ashleigh danced together.

We are experts at putting our horses into pressured situations. They have been in some pretty amazing places;
- Forecourt of the Opera House on New Years Eve, when the fireworks were in full swing
- Sydney Night Club.
- Anzac Military Tattoo with the Bands playing behind them.
- Bareback with no bridle with Melbourne trams running along each side
- rearing up inside the Sydney Stock exchange
- cantering through the foyer of the Sydney Entertainment centre
- standing on the ‘sunstage’ (Asian Games) 40 metres above the ground with no safety net
- We have had helicopters flying over their heads, lifted them up on fork lifts and moved them in flying boxes.

Anti-Bullying Presentations

“There is no room for bullies in this team”

Everyone knows someone who has been the victim of a bully. Bullying is a huge issues in schools. We have developed an innovative new presentation using the animals to give the children the message that ‘Bullying is not acceptable’. The programme has had great success in schools, both with students and teachers. The children can really relate to the animals, they see their behaviour in the animals and in this way the message is easily identifiable by the kids.

Steve regularly Travels around Australia conducting progressive two day clinics.

He is sought after as a Speaker at conferences. In 2009 Steve was invited as one of only a small group of Australian trainers to lecturer at the International Science Conference in Sydney.
