JOAN SARTORI SOE
Joan started her studies at MRILC in 2012 and received her certificate in 2014. Joan’s life with horses began at 8 years old and have over the years offered her to work with a wide variety of horses and disciplines. Growing up showjumping was her favorite discipline. A stay in Colorado from 2010 to 2012 gave Joan the opportunity to learn about western riding and she took home her knowledge to make the learning school RANCH E-QUUS in Denmark where she now offer courses in the MR method, riding lessons in western-based riding and trails, for all ages.
The Introductory and Advanced courses provide a strong foundation in Monty’s methods. They are valuable in their own right, but are also part of the process to become a Monty Roberts Instructor.
The Introductory course can be completed with any of our Certified Instructors worldwide. Some teach it in different formats, but the content and qualification are the same. For some students, the Introductory Course provides all of the skill they need to be successful with their horses. For those who want to further their skills, or become professionals in the industry, the next step is the Advanced course, which can only be completed at Flag Is Up Farms in California.
All course offer students effective tools to communicate using the horse’s own natural language, forming a partnership based on trust and communication rather than dominance. Included in your course is a subscription to Monty’s Equus Online University. This online learning tool will give you a great start prior to the course and a greater idea of what you will be learning and doing in the round pen during your course. The ongoing education that you will have with the online lessons will suggest exercises to continue with at home while working toward your exams.
