Monty Roberts’ Introductory Course of Horsemanship [2 weeks]

This intensive 2 weeks course is your chance to study the training methods and concepts of Monty Roberts.

The aim of the course is to provide you good working knowledge of Monty’s concepts, Horse Psychology and behaviour. You will learn through a mixture of classroom and practical sessions. You will learn Monty’s Join-Up techniques, Longlining and how to use the Dually Halter correctly. You will conduct a Psychology project during the course using your project horses.

By the end of the course you will combine all the techniques and know how to preform a “full” Join-Up, as well as have the skills and knowledge to become the trustworthy leader your horses are looking for, enabling you to overcome issues with leading, loading onto a trailer, standing for the farrier/vet and much, much more.

As well as watching your fellow students, you will see Chris demonstrate each new practical technique and there will be a number of demo horses during the course. We will cover topics including-  “natural horsemanship”, traditional horsemanship, horse psychology, behaviour, learning, biology, nutrition, confirmation, farriery, husbandry and horse performance

For those wanting to carry on the learning after the course, and study for the Introductory Certificate Of Horsemanship, the Home-study option includes an additional 400 pages of manual, which provides you with detailed knowledge of all aspects of horsemanship, including breeding, feeding, nutrition, confirmation, biology, horse performance and management and of course has very strong emphasis on horse psychology and learning. We run regular Revision Session for any help with the theory content of the course.

Chris also offers the opportunity of becoming ‘helper’ for the day on courses and you will get a free practical lesson at the end of the course day. Chris will also send out practice exam questions to make sure your revision is on the right track.

During the home study period, as well as learning the in-depth manual, you will complete several months of field study and submit your work to be assessed by Chris. This is your chance to put what you have learnt into practice, and work with as many different “safe” i.e. trained and backed horses as you can.

Upon completing your field work you will be invited back to undertake the written and practical exams. Successful completion of which will mean you graduate as a holder of the “Introductory Certificate Of Horsemanship”
