‘The Horse Whisperer’ returns to Myerscough College

Published
Wednesday 5 Oct 2016

Another full house is expected at Myerscough College’s International Equine Arena as the world famous ‘Horse Whisperer’ returns as a special guest later this month.

 

Monty Roberts visits Myerscough on Saturday, October 15th to give a talk and demonstration on how owners can overcome problems with their horses. The visit is the first date of Monty’s 2016 ‘Living Legend’ tour.

During what’s sure to be a popular event, the 81-year-old trainer, along with his assistant, Kelly Marks, the audience will learn how to achieve a level of trust and connection that you never thought was possible between a human being and a horse.

Doors open at 6pm for Intelligent Horsemanship members, 7pm for non-members, with the main demonstration lasting from 7.30pm till 10.30pm.

At the event last year, Monty wowed the crowds by curing one horse’s fear of cars as well as another horse which had a phobia about walking forwards. They ended the event by training a horse which was causing problems for its owner by refusing to get into its trailer.

Kelly said: ‘’We’re looking forward to coming back to the Myerscough College. Monty loves coming to the college every year because we always get really good crowds.

“Monty works by using body language and his eyes as he helps the horses, as well as positive reinforcement techniques. It’s all about Monty getting the horses to trust him, by understanding the silent communication between horses which allows the animals to be trained more effectively in a true partnership between horse and the human.’’

Monty Roberts is originally from California, and is an award winning trainer of championship horses and best-selling author on the subject. He is also the creator of the now world renowned equine training technique called Join Up, as well as a trainer for the Queen’s equestrian staff.
