An exclusive evening with the grand old man of horsemanship on 14th March in Essen
Despite probably being the most famous “horse-whisperer” of them all, Monty Roberts is essentially a man who listens to horses rather than whispering to them, and who probably has a command of their language like no other: he is simply a legend! For the first time in many years you now have the rare opportunity of experiencing the grand old man of horsemanship live in Germany again at EQUITANA 2019. With Monty Roberts live on 14th March, 2019, EQUITANA presents an exclusive coaching session with the prize-winning trainer and bestselling author.
Actually, Monty prefers to call himself a “horse gentler” rather than horse whisperer and has shared his expertise in dealing with horses with others for over 50 years now. One of the cornerstones of his methods is non-violent communication between human and animal. His Join-Up® and Follow-Up® methods are based on the language of horses and are used all over the world in the meantime.
Join-Up® is a training method that centres on trust and horses’ natural behaviour, in particular their flight response. Using his method, Monty manages to create a bond of trust between him and a horse in a very short time. Now aged 83, Monty Roberts has used his methods to train over 10,000 horses throughout his career.
At EQUITANA, Monty will be providing insights into the training methods he uses to create a trusting relationship in training and in everyday contact with horses. During the training evening he will work with various horses, whom he will meet for the first time in the large arena.
"We are especially pleased to present Monty Roberts to his large fan community in Germany", says EQUITANA director Christina Uetz. Monty Roberts was last seen at EQUITANA 2003.
From March 9th to 17th, the EQUITANA brings together everything the international horse world has to offer. In addition to the world's largest exhibition area, the 25th EQUITANA anniversary edition will once again feature numerous top events – including the horse gala HOP TOP Show and exclusive training evenings with the stars of equestrian sport. Tickets for EQUITANA and "Monty Roberts live" are now available in the EQUITANA ticket shop.
