The exams are the next step on the pathway towards becoming a Certified Instructor the Advanced Exams can only be taken after completion of the Monty Roberts Advanced Course of Horsemanship and sufficient home / field study.
You will be tested on your knowledge and overall experience in Monty’s concepts. The emphasis here is on practical work and the goal is to develop in you the mindset of a horse trainer.
- You will gentle wild or untouched horses
- Introducing wild or untouched horses to being handled, haltered and led
Another group of horses will go through the starting process:
- Initial trust building and desensitizing
- Introducing the tack and long-lining
Throughout you will be encouraged to read each horse and respond appropriately, adjusting your approach for each individual and dealing with problems as they arise.
When our Certified Instructors determine that you are ready, you will return for practical and written exams, at successful completion of which, you will graduate from the Advanced Course.
