The Man Who Listens To Horses
About Monty Roberts
In 2017 Monty Roberts was named as Horse and Hound Magazine’s Top 50 All Time Greatest Horsemen. He recently was the fist ever outside trainer to demonstrate his skills at the famous Spanish Riding School in Vienna, Austria.
Monty Roberts is the creator of the world-renowned and revolutionary equine training technique called Join-Up. Monty travels the world demonstrating that non-violent, gentle, training creates breakthrough performance as you partner with your horse.
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 multiple World Championships in the show ring and was named FEI Man of the Year in 1997.
Today, Monty’s goal is to share his message that “Violence is never the answer” and to that end he 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.
