The legendary “Horse Whisperer,” Monty Roberts, is running free, resilience-building workshops for veterans and their families. The three-day program involves working closely with horses. The individuals and horses develop a special bond built upon mutual trust and respect. Join-Up offers everyone an effective tool to rediscover themselves through the eyes of the horse. This self-awareness exercise deals effectively with emotional trauma, anti-social behavior and withdrawal, anger, stress, combat stress and even Post Traumatic Stress Injury (PTSI).

Roberts holds two Ph.D.s in Behavioral Sciences. 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 veterans as they learn to cause a partnership with the horse. After three transformational days, veterans can better understand how to control their anger, confront painful memories, cope with real-life situations and move on with their lives and relationships. situations and move on with their lives and relationships.

Roberts prefers the term ‘injury’ or PTSI over Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD, saying, “I don’t believe our psychology fraternity is doing anything to give our returnees a better life with the term disorder,” Roberts has developed this novel approach to working with veterans using horses.

October 27-November 7, 2014, is the next Introductory Course in Monty’s concepts. See more here: http://www.join-up.org/courses.html

NEW: Monty’s Lead Lines

Monday, August 25th, 2014

Monty teaches why freedom of choice, intrinsic learning, and mistakes are all learning opportunities. Monty developed these 2 new lengths to allow your horses to learn incrementally. This is the heart of Monty’s educational message.

These lead lines are:

  • Soft – cushioned cotton core and special soft nylon, double stitched to last
  • Easier to hold than round ropes – any size hand can get a good grip
  • Super strong nylon doesn’t break down in dirt and moisture
  • Brightly colored for easy identification of length – even in the dirt – 12’ (4 meters) is RED and 17’ (almost 6 meters) is BLUE
  • Durable brass snaps hold up in harsh conditions

Uses – Why 12 feet (3,65 meters)?
Gives a handler maneuvering room if a horse plays up
Plenty of length to wrap through the noseband to create an alternative to harsh chains – in case you are stuck without your Dually!
Can be used to create a quick foal handler (figure of eight)

Uses – Why 17 feet (5,18 meters)?
A good length to use for Join-Ups in the Round Pen. The weighted end tosses easily and creates a nice slapping sound for send away
A good safe length for trailer loading
A good length for Dually Halter training for leading manners and standing still
The perfect length for leading a horse from atop another pony horse – not too much line in your hands but plenty of length to safely lead.

12 feet – $20 USD

17 feet – $25 USD
