RENOWNED HORSE WHISPERER PUTS VETERANS ON A PATH TO HEALING IN MILITARY CHANNEL’S HORSE SENSE AND SOLDIERS
— One-Hour Special Premieres Sunday, September 19 at 10 PM on Military Channel —
Silver Spring, Md. (September 7, 2010) – In the newest special in Military Channel’s Coming Home initiative, original “horse whisperer” and American renaissance cowboy Monty Roberts works with three veterans of the Iraq war, each of whom suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. The result is nothing short of magic.
Through an innovative yet experimental approach to coping with PTSD, Roberts shares his lifetime of experience and insight in non-violent training as he gently coaches each veteran to read the silent language of horses and reach the point of breakthrough, or “Join-Up®,” the moment at which a wild horse will trust and accept human contact. It is an emotional and striking metaphor for how these soldiers can work through and cope with their debilitating depression and anger. HORSE SENSE AND SOLDIERS premieres Sunday, September 19 at 10 PM on Military Channel. (more…)

Interpreted by Monty Roberts
Illustrations by Sisko Tahon-Raulo and Phillipa “Millie” Raulo
SHY BOY SPEAKS!
I’m Shy Boy is the story of Monty Roberts’ mustang companion, beginning before he was adopted. His tale begins in the Nevada mountains, where Shy Boy was born into a wild herd of horses. Seeing the world through the eyes of a horse, you experience his first encounters with the humans who capture him. His surprise at meeting Monty, a man who moves and speaks like a horse, develops into a bond of trust that will last a lifetime. Shy Boy begins an ongoing adventure to bring non-violence and communication into people’s lives, and to allow them to treat their horses with respect and understanding. Shy Boy and Monty live on Flag Is Up Farms in California, where they continue their adventures together and fulfill Monty’s mission, “To leave the world a better place than I found it for horses and for people too.”
For 4-8 year olds!
The Little American Mustang
This storybook is brimming with vivid illustrations and written from the horse’s point of view much like the original Black Beauty story. Shy Boy’s story will open a child’s mind to what horses and humans can learn from each other when kindness and trust are involved. The Little American Mustang shows children how much fun people and horses can have together.
Both books are beautifully illustrated by Sisko Tahon-Raulo and Phillipa “Millie” Raulo. You can order it right here at Monty’s shop: http://www.montyroberts.com

MONTY ROBERTS, NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR, PENS FIRST NOVEL FOR CHILDREN
MONTY’s CELEBRATED AMERICAN MUSTANG NARRATES HIS OWN STORY
Solvang, CA (August 30, 2010) – Monty Roberts’ seventh book enlightens and entertains children while helping them better understand the hearts and minds of horses. This first novel from Monty was inspired by requests from little girls the world over to tell the story from the mustang’s perspective. Like Black Beauty, the story is told in the voice and from the perspective of the horse.
Monty’s says: “This book is especially gratifying because it answers the requests of hundreds of children; it allows Shy Boy to tell his own story.” (more…)
