Monty Roberts is an American original, the real-life ‘horse whisperer’ whose revolutionary Join-Up® training method reveals the depth of communication possible between horse and horse trainer. Monty can cause a wild mustang horse who has never before been ridden and makeover that relationship of trust from the horse to accept a bridle, saddle, and rider in about thirty minutes. Thousands have witnessed Monty’s Join-Up with Equus and continue to book his tours worldwide.
The book, The Man Who Listens to Horses, Monty’s autobiography, remained on the New York Times bestseller book list for 58 weeks, unheard of for a horse book, and changed forever our perception of the horse and human relationship. Monty’s text book From My Hands to Yours: Lessons from a lifetime of training championship horses is in its third edition. In it Monty covers horse equipment, horse health, tack, bits, lead lines, ponying a horse, mustangs, Join-Up, training a young horse in natural horsemanship, horses that bite, trailer loading, mounting, and halters. Monty suggests the video DVD Fix-Up, Ask Monty and Monty’s Equus Online University would add to this book’s gift of horse learning.
