April 29-30 The Movement 2019 Symposium in Solvang, CA

Thursday, February 28th, 2019

March 8, 2019 Solvang, California: Come and discover how and why the qualities of horses teach us how to lower stress and build trust at The Movement 2019 to be held at Flag Is Up Farms, in Solvang, California, April 29-30.  Tickets can be found at www.THEMOVEMENT2019.com

The Movement’ symposium launched in 2018 with the vision to unite outstanding speakers and live demonstrations with horses. Founded on Monty Roberts’ belief that non violent forms of communication are essential to building trust and achieving outstanding results, the mission of The Movement is to help people discover the unique power of horses to teach better ways to interact across all aspects of life.

Two hundred participants from around the world journeyed to Solvang and agreed that the symposium was a life changing experience. The 2018 presentations were recorded for historical relevance and can be found here.

The journey continues with world renowned experts across psychology, science, social work and horse training exploring breakthrough insights on how mindfulness and horses help us better learn, lead and live better.

2019 PRESENTERS APRIL 29-30

  • Monty Roberts, horse trainer, Join-Up concept founder
  • William Miller Ph.D., Emeritus Distinguished Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry, The University of New Mexico
  • Kris Robins, CSW and Member, Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers, Veterans Program Developer
  • Dr. Veronica Fowler, Senior Post Doctoral Scientist, Equine Behavior
  • Dave Mochel, Mindfulness Coach, TED Talk contributor
  • Christy Counts, President The Right Horse Initiative
  • Dr. Robert Miller, DVM Founder of Foal Imprint Training
  • James Oliver, award winning photographer, veteran, addiction group counselor

The importance of clinical science trials, training methods, non-violent communication and a mindful approach will be represented as essential to build trust and significantly improve all aspects of relationships. The unique power of mindfulness and the unique power of horses will be explored during two days of keynote presentations from a cross section of speakers, live demonstrations with horses and meaningful discussions. Whether a horse expert or horse lover, the goal of the take-home is to affect lives in a positive way through studying the qualities of the horse.

Tickets can be found at www.THEMOVEMENT2019.com and an early bird rate ends March 11th.

“We are describing The Movement as an event to Learn, Lead and Live Better,” said Debbie Roberts Loucks who is managing the event. “A movement started in the horse industry when horse owners began to have a clearer vision of how horses affected humans in positive way. Inspired by how interchangeable the lessons from herd behavior were, I’ve watched trainers, teachers, mothers and managers become better communicators, leaders and influencers for good. This year’s presenters are each amazing in their 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 life-changing plan. Leaders may inspire, but only when people choose to act does a vision become a movement.”

This unique event helps you better understand problem solving using violence-free training methods. People will come and spend time with like-minded people absorbing what non-violent communication can be and enjoy discussions with Monty and students from around the world.

At the workshop, 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.

“The Movement event is approved as continuing education credit hours for our CHA membership as it brings together scientific and practical experts who are helping horses and humans to work better together,” Christy Landwehr, CEO of the Certified Horsemanship Association.

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

“Violence is Not the Answer” Triple Finalist, 2019 EQUUS INTERNATIONAL® Film Festival

The Movement – Monty Roberts-Produced

“Violence is Not the Answer” Named Triple Finalist

for EQUUS INTERNATIONAL Film Festival® Awards

Solvang, California (January 31, 2019): Monty Roberts is known as a horse whisperer, a New York Times best-selling author, an honorary Member of the Royal Victorian Order and now it might be time to add, “the Tom Hanks of equestrian filmdom.”

The 30 minute film from Monty Roberts Productions, The Movement – Monty Roberts and Diego, the Wild Mustang, Violence is Not the Answer, has been officially selected as a finalist in three Best Of award categories – Best Series, Best Training and Best Film Representing the Horse/Human Bond — during the 2019 EQUUS INTERNATIONAL® Film Festival, March 14-17, at the Roxy Theater in Missoula, MT.

“Violence is never the answer,” says Roberts. “Violence is always for the violator and never for the victim. None of us was born with the right to say you must or I’ll hurt you to any other creature, animal or human. That’s the policy I’ve lived with. Bringing it over to horses, allow a horse to want to do it. Congratulate them. Tell them how good they were.”

In 2017, EIFF presented Roberts with its Equine Icon Award for his work bettering horses’ lives and embodying the horse/human bond. He also accepted four EIFF awards for Monty Roberts Productions, for Best Music Video (Whisper), Best Short Series (Palm Island: Horse Sense for People); Best Series (Backstage Pass); and Best Equine/Human Bond (Shy Boy, The Horse that Came in from the Wild ).

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.” He 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.

On Saturday evening, March 16, EQUUS INTERNATIONAL Film Festival will recognize some of the world’s best in documentary, independent, music video, and educational film craftsmanship across more than 30 award categories and posthumously recognize Dayton O. Hyde, founder of the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary, with its 2019 Equine Icon Award.

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.

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.”
