Monty Roberts is touring the world in 2016, helping owners and horses face their fears and learn to trust each other. This week Roberts flies from England where he was invited to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s 90th birthday at the Royal Windsor Horse Show, and heads to South Africa for his inaugural tour there.
To celebrate the 50th year of gentle horse training at Flag Is Up Farms, Roberts has added two multi-course package prices through the Monty Roberts International Learning Center. Students will get a rare look at Monty Roberts’ lifetime of knowledge and experience. Monty’s Special Training Week is August 1st to 5th, where he works live with a variety of horses. Students will observe how Monty Roberts’ concepts work with problem horses, young horses and unhanded horses, across all breeds and many disciplines. Following this first week, students will then participate in the Join-Up®Course followed by the Long Lining Course to experience how communication with horses in the round pen happens, hands-on.
Included in the courses is a subscription to Monty’s Equus Online University. This online learning tool will support the continuing education in Monty’s methods.

Monty Roberts first gained widespread fame with the release of his New York Times Best Selling book, The Man Who Listens To Horses; a chronicle of his life and development of his non-violent horse training methods called Join-Up. Monty grew up on a working horse farm as a firsthand witness to traditional, often violent methods of horse training and breaking the spirit with an abusive hand. Rejecting that, he went on to win nine world’s championships in the show ring. Today, Monty’s goal is to share his message that “Violence is never the answer.” Roberts has been encouraged by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II with the award of the Membership in The Royal Victorian Order, as well as becoming Patron of Join-Up International. Other honors received were the ASPCA “Founders” award and the MSPCA George T. Angell Humanitarian Award. Monty is credited with launching the first of its kind Equus Online University; an interactive online lesson site that is the definitive learning tool for violence-free training.
Join-Up philosophies can be seen at work with both humans and horses across the world, from farms to major corporations.

Horse Sense and Soldiers aired on Discovery Military highlighting the therapeutic effect that horses and Monty Roberts’ Join-Up have on PTSD.
