Ann started her studies at the Monty Roberts International Learning Center in 2002 and received her certification in 2006. Ann started her career with horses at a riding school and continued her education with show jumping and therapeutic rehabilitation. Over the years Ann has worked with a variety of horses in USA, Spain, France and Scandinavia – from mustangs and tourism riding to show-jumpers and racehorses. Between 2005-2013 Ann arranged and promoted Monty Roberts demonstrations in Sweden and has been a part of Monty’s team during demonstrations throughout the years in both Scandinavia and Europe. Since 2006, Ann has arranged Join-Up clinics and Introductory Courses of Horsemanship in Sweden. Currently she is studying behavioral sciences hoping to research applications of Monty’s Join-Up® concepts with horses and humans.

In 2014 Sara completed her Internship and is now recognized as Sweden’s second Monty Roberts Certified Instructor. Sara is looking forward to holding clinics and courses and spreading Monty methods to many more people.
Elina has always had a passion for horses and when she was 13 years old she got her first icelandic horse. Elina was 12 years old when she saw Monty Roberts for the first time in 2006 on a demo in Sweden. She became fascinated about the communication and the trust that comes with Join-Up. Two years later she took the first course in Sweden and has from that moment been following Monty’s methods. In 2017 she reached her goal and became a Certified Monty Roberts Instructor. Elina is studying to become a recreation instructor at the moment and will be examined in 2018. She loves the work with children and her goal is to use the power of Join-Up to help children find their strength. Elina has her own homepage and company in Sweden and looking forward to hold clinics and courses to spread Monty’s methods around the country.

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.
