With the beginning of the lockdowns being eased, I am happy to announce opening of the business.. albeit with some minor changes..
All of Monty Roberts Courses will be going ahead as planned from 1st June. I have permanently reduced student numbers on the courses for the rest of the year to allow for distancing, and we will provide everyone with their own equipment so there is no sharing of lines and halters. We are also in the fortunate position of being on a private large yard so we can easily spread out. We also have ample supply of alcohol gel!
For those of you outside of Sussex who require accommodation, as hotels in the area will be opening in July I have added additional dates into the calendar for late summer/early Autumn so this shouldn’t be an issue later in the year.
For those of you that have booked on courses that were postponed you all would have received a re-booking email with alternate dates and arrangements and I look forward to finally meeting you all.
For those of you interested in the big 2 week Monty Roberts Course of Horsemanship, the June course is down to the last place, but due to hotels/motels in the area being closed if you are outside of Sussex area you may struggle to find accommodation… We are however running the course again in August & hopefully accommodation issues will be sorted
Looking forward to lockdowns being lifted and getting out and about? Come and spend 2 weeks in the fresh air learning in depth horse psychology & behaviour and getting to know and work with our horses. The course is always an eye opener. Click the link for all the Course for details
Like all small business’s during the Covid-19 outbreak, we are having to adapt to new ways of working where possible and come up with ideas of how to keep going during these unprecedented times.
As the vast majority my work has had to stop, we’ve come up with some Stay At Home Options that may be of interest.
Other ways you can help..
The course and training calendar is currently suspended but we are continuing to take bookings from 1st June onwards (depending on Government rules nearer the time) So if you’re looking forward to the days when you can come to ours and learn some new skills with our horses your bookings would be appreciated.
You can also help support us by buying one of our Gift Vouchers that can be redeemed at any point after all the dust settles and can be used to pay towards courses and call outs.
If these options aren’t of interested then we’ve created a crowdfunded pool so people who support us can donate to our immediate running costs.. further details can be found HERE
To those that have booked lessons and courses in the past few weeks, we’d like to thank you for your continued support and look forward to seeing you at the farm in the near future.
To all our existing and future clients, with the inescapable news and current situation regarding Covid-19…Due to the newly announced “stay at home” mandate… ALL call out work, Courses, private lessons & courses are postponed until further notice.
I would like to inform you that at present we are only taking Monty Roberts course and private lesson/course bookings that are booked for sessions after 25th May, this is subject to change depending on government advice nearer the time and lockdowns being lifted.
We are also going to restrict the number of students on courses to just 3 for the remainder of the year to allow “distancing” to be observed at all times.
Please note that under our terms and conditions you can re-book onto other scheduled courses, re-schedule call out appointments and lessons within one year of booking. If guidelines change in the coming days, we will post further updates as and when appropriate.

Everything you do with your horses is, at its core, a leading exercise. Standing still to be mounted, trotting up for the vet, walking to the field, loading into a trailer, stable manners, they’re all connected. Give them choices and the knowledge to make the right choice and you’ll end up with a great working partnership.. learn how on a Ground Essentials Weekend
For those of you who can’t make the dates of the scheduled courses, or prefer individual private lessons.. we are now happy to offer some of our most popular courses on a private “request” basis from our yard near Ditchling Common, Sussex.. Including the Monty Roberts Introductory course & Join-Up!
You’ll spend the maximum amount of time with the horses, and each course can be tailored to suit you and your skill level.. Follow the link for details & course options
