Consider Year-End Support for Horse Sense & Healing

Friday, November 30th, 2018

November 30, 2018, Solvang, California: Join-Up International’s programs are effectively assisting veterans, at-risk youth, animal welfare and education of future trainers of non-violent horse training. Horse Sense & Healing, Lead-Up and a horse gentling program are regularly offered through the Monty Roberts International Learning Center as programs under the non-profit Join-Up International (JUI).

The Learning Center is located in the Santa Ynez valley at Flag Is Up Farms, where amazing successes training dedicated young men and women are achieved to promote Join-Up’s mission. The staff and volunteers are dedicated to promoting and teaching gentle, more effective alternatives to violence, such as trust building communication, through educational courses and clinics, using horses as a vehicle for this process. Violence is never the answer.

JUI has two other important programs, one for veterans, first responders and their families and the other is for at-risk youth. The horses are the barometers of the participants’ emotional control and stress reduction in our Horse Sense & Healing program since 2010. Lead-Up was developed for youth to reduce violence in the community by forming peaceful leaders. Join-Up offers everyone an effective tool to rediscover themselves through the eyes of the horse.

Fulfilling the work of JUI and the Learning Center takes the help of passionate supporters who recognize the importance of education and what it takes to achieve the goals. Join-Up International, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit organization, tax ID 77-0459889. Gifts are fully tax-deductible as allowed by law.

1 on 1 Coaching with Monty Roberts

Wednesday, October 31st, 2018

October 31, 2018, Solvang, California: There were lots of ‘firsts’ in 2018 for Monty Roberts! When Monty opened the first segment of The Movement Symposium in May 2018, students were immediately positively affected by the horses.

This transformative two-day journey helped attendees discover the unique power of horses to find mindfulness, to learn and apply non-violent forms of communication and leadership and to help humans and horses live better lives.

In the arena, presenters and trainers shared their perspectives of the flight animal and how their vocations were changed when they were able to use horses as a metaphor for a better understanding of their work and relationships.

Monty Roberts was deeply impressed with this extraordinary group of presenters who will move you with their stories and lessons of horses transforming humans.

People can now request Monty’s help with their horses, for which Monty is happy to oblige, carrying on his life’s goal to create better lives for horses and people too. Better yet, Monty’s team put together the package of The Movement DVD + Online Video on Demand + 1 Hour of Coaching from Monty for $499

MONTY ROBERTS AVAILABLE FOR SELECT INTERVIEWS:
The New York Times bestselling author and world-renowned horse trainer Monty Roberts is available for interviews.

MONTY ROBERTS first gained widespread fame with the release of his New York Times Best Selling book, The Man Who Listens To Horses; a chronicle of his life and development of his non-violent horse training methods called Join-Up®. Monty grew up on a working horse farm as a firsthand witness to traditional, often violent methods of horse training and breaking the spirit with an abusive hand. Rejecting that, he went on to win nine world’s championships in the show ring. Today, Monty’s goal is to share his message that “Violence is never the answer.” Roberts has been encouraged by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II with the award of the Membership in The Royal Victorian Order, as well as becoming Patron of Join-Up International. Other honors received were the ASPCA “Founders” award and the MSPCA George T. Angell Humanitarian Award and FEI’s Man of the Year. Monty was recently included as Horse and Hound Magazine’s Top 50 Horsemen of All Time. Monty is credited with launching the first of its kind Equus Online University; an interactive online lesson site that is the definitive learning tool for violence-free training.

JOIN-UP philosophies can be seen at work with both humans and horses across the world, from farms to major corporations. To learn more about Monty Roberts or the many applications of his Join-Up training methods, visit www.montyroberts.com. Horse Sense and Soldiers aired on Discovery Military highlighting the therapeutic effect that horses and Monty Roberts’ Join-Up® have on PTSD.

Last year’s website is a glimpse into the caliber of the international presenters. http://themovement2018.com/  This year’s site will be up as soon as the presenters are confirmed.

Debbie Roberts Loucks is again managing the event, “A movement starts with a clear vision of a world different than the one we live in today. The presenters are each amazing in their own industries and they all have a vision of a better world, inspired by incorporating horses in their own story. They come to share that vision and build on it with participants who will take home a plan to change their lives too. Leaders may inspire, but only when people choose to act does a vision become a movement.”

“This two-day event is part symposium and part festival and will be lots of fun for those who appreciate horses. The Movement is the perfect environment for connecting with peers who know that horses have a lot to teach”, commented Pat Roberts, wife of Monty Roberts and co-host of the event. “You will learn how Monty keeps stress out of his life with horses, and how to develop the motivation and resilience to achieve your life’s goals.”

Monty Roberts, the New York Times bestselling author of The Man Who Listens to Horses will share his life story about overcoming barriers, motivating yourself and lowering your stress levels to achieve your goals. Other presenters come from backgrounds such as artists, a variety of horse trainers, authors, professors and more.

At the symposium, Monty and his Certified Instructors will work with a range of young and remedial horses. Participants will gain first-hand knowledge during demonstrations, lectures, and discussions. This event is for the novice rider, the non-rider, as well as the advanced student who wants to observe advanced horsemanship at work. There will be demonstrations on how to communicate with horses in their natural language in various situations.

Attendees shared:

“A big dream of my 14 year old daughter Lilly came true at Flag Is Up Farms and I appreciated it very much to meet William R. Miller who’s books I read 20 years ago studying medicine in The Netherlands at the University of Maastricht! Thank you very much for this special time and experience!”

“Even though I have watched Monty work with many horses on videos, that first Join-Up with Diego brought me to tears. When I was talking to my friends later they said the same was true for them. Of course watching Monty and the girls work with Diego and the wild horses was my favorite but the other presenters were great too. I learned something valuable from each of them.”

“It was worth the trip from Europe to Flag Is Up Farms! The two days were inspiring, packed with valuable insights based on real experiences; open-heartedly shared among likewise thinking people – a real Movement! It was great being part of it! Thank you!”

Monty Roberts’ life’s goal is “to leave the world a better place than I found it, for horse and for people too.”
