The Spanish Riding School is very pleased to be able to spontaneously invite Monty Roberts to a show at the winter school after his short visit in April. The world famous horse trainer will come to Vienna on the first weekend in July, where he will demonstrate his art of horse communication on Sunday evening. While the Lipizzan horsemen of the Spanish Riding School enjoy their summer holidays at the Heringsberg training center, Monty Roberts will be showing his program with horses of different origins.
The traditional Spanish Riding School, where the art of classic dressage education has been cultivated for more than 450 years, has opened its doors for the first time for a show of the now 82-year-old Monty Roberts. The man, whose understanding of horses is characterized by body language, demonstrates his method Join-Up® with four horses. Three classic horse themes will be shown – the start of a raw horse, the handling of terrifying horses and a loading operation.
Monty Roberts’ training is based on the natural behavior of Equus, the flight animal, which recognizes intent and will follow and work with a trustworthy horseman. Monty sees himself as gentler of horses who encourages all breeds to a trusting relationship with humans in all disciplines. Monty Roberts accepted his invitation to demonstrate at the Spanish Riding School with great joy for the opportunity. For him, as he says modestly, a dream is fulfilled. But also for the Spanish Riding School it is a great honor to welcome him as a guest.
