Join-Up Course

This course is your chance to come and learn Monty’s world famous Join-Up technique 

  • It will provide you with the foundation of the communication we call “Equus” through demonstrations and practical sessions.
  • Learn how to establish a trust based partnership with your horse based on choice.
  • Join-Up is a training tool, every horse and session is different, come and learn why there’s much more to the technique than what you see/learn from the shows & demos.
  • Learn how subtle changes in your body positioning and intent  can have dramatic effects on the behaviour/actions of your horse.
  • Begin to “read” your horse so you can spot problems before they escalate. This will help with your confidence whether you are on the ground or in the saddle.
  • How the technique utilises 2 very simple principles that the horse naturally understands.
  • Learn the difference between positive and negative reinforcement & what effects they have on training, and why so many people get them wrong
  • How herd dynamics can influence behaviour
  • Learn how to achieve join-up without a round pen….. & how everything you want to achieve with your horse can be done with this method. No tricks, no reliance on halters, lines or equipment.
  • Find out why this is such a powerful training tool, giving you insights into yourself as well as your horses & why we use this method when working with military veterans & at risk, vulnerable youth in both the Horse Sense & HealingLead Up  clinics
