'The Horse Whisperer' Monty Roberts is returning to Myerscough

Monty Roberts visits Myerscough on Saturday, March 3rd, to give a talk and demonstration on how owners can overcome problems with their horses. The visit is Monty’s first to Myerscough since 2016 and is one of only three UK dates in his current tour, the others being in Kent and Devon.

During what’s sure to be a popular event, the 82-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. There is a half hour intermission around 9pm where Monty and Kelly will be available to answer questions and sign books.

Kelly said: ‘’We’re looking forward to coming back to the Myerscough College. Monty loves coming to the College 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 said: ‘’I will work with some of the neighborhood’s most troubled equines to overcome their fears using a language they’re guaranteed to understand – their own.

‘’Whether it’s putting their first saddle, bridle and rider on, or loading them into a horsebox, it’s all achieved with communication, compassion and care. My non-violent training techniques allow me to accomplish in minutes what can take weeks in traditional training.’’

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.
