Monty Roberts has announced several upcoming clinics in California; rare appearances in the past few years. Roberts spends about 300 days per year touring worldwide to live audiences interested in his renowned concepts of gentle horse training. He has toured continually since the release of his first book The Man Who Listens to Horses, a New York Times bestseller in 1996.
Roberts has revolutionized the way many horses are trained today worldwide. His Flag Is Up Farms in Solvang, California, is a highlight in the newly published book, Stables, by Kathryn Masson from Rizzoli Press for which a book signing will be held in Santa Barbara June 11. Flag Is Up Farms is world renowned for developing and maintaining the Join-Up International teaching of force-free horse training.
On May 24-26, Roberts will teach a three day clinic, RIDING WITH RESPECT: striving for performance from your horse through non-violent training. This is the first ridden clinic given by Roberts at Flag Is Up Farms in over 10 years. Riders from all levels will learn Monty’s perspective of understanding the horse’s generous nature. All disciplines and types of horses are attending.
Roberts has been a supporter of the nearby Light Hands Horsemanship clinic and will appear there for a demonstration on May 22 with his champion reining cow horse Nice Chrome. Roberts will besharing the expertise that enables him to win nine world’s championships in the show ring.
In August, Roberts will personally teach and demonstrate over five intensive days with a cross section of breeds exhibiting training challenges such as bucking, bolting and biting. The August 16-20 clinic will also be held on Flag Is Up Farms in Solvang, California. Roberts holds several degrees including two doctorates in behavioral sciences. This course is offered to people from all over the world who wish to learn from a master educator.
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 and also by receiving the ASPCA “Founders” award and the MSPCA George T. Angell Humanitarian Award.
Join-Up® philosophies can be seen at work with both humans and horses across the world, from farms to major corporations. To learn more about Monty Roberts or the many applications of his Join-Up training methods, visitwww.MontyRoberts.com or contact firstname.lastname@example.org, 949-632-1856
