The MRILC is unique from other training facilities because the primary focus of our curriculum is on equine psychology and behavior rather than riding skills. Students develop a solid understanding of what motivates and influences equine behavior in order to increase their effectiveness in the application of their choice: virtually any discipline of riding, veterinary assisting, shoeing, racehorse training and so forth.
The Monty Roberts International Learning Center is located at Flag Is Up Farms in the Santa Ynez Valley, California at the heart of the Central Coast’s wine country just 40 miles north of Santa Barbara.
Join-Up® International primarily supports the Monty Roberts International Learning Center (MRILC), located at Flag Is Up Farms in Solvang, California. The MRILC is dedicated to teaching principles of non-violence and trust-building communication, using horses as a vehicle for this learning process.
We need your support for the care of the horses, outreach programs and scholarships. The Learning Center offers special events, classes, and in-depth courses throughout the year to horsemen and non-horsemen alike. We welcome and invite your support.

Monty Roberts and his non-profit Join-Up® International, is running free, resilience-building workshops for veterans, police, fire, first responders and their families.
In these workshops, he demonstrates the deeply healing power of establishing a trusting relationship with horses without the use of force. With his soft-spoken, nurturing style, Roberts assists participants as they learn to cause a partnership with the horse. After three transformational days, they can better understand how to control their anger, confront painful memories, cope with real-life situations and move on with their lives and relationships.
