Melanie was born and raised around horses in Venezuela and started playing polo at 10 years old, falling in love with the sport. Always curios about horses and training, Melanie went on to study Equine Science in Lexington, Kentucky and then moved to Argentina. Melanie worked under Polo horse trainer Polito (Carlos) Ulloa then wanting to expand her knowledge of non-violent training methods, she decided to start the Monty’s program in 2013. Melanie received her certification May 2017 and plans to keep working with Polo horses in Argentina.
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.
