Monty Roberts Join-Up DVD. Join-Up® is a consistent set of training principles using the horse’s inherent methods of communication and herd behaviour rather than force. The result is a willing partnership in which the horse’s performance can flourish to its full potential, rather than exist within the boundaries of obedience.
Monty Roberts spent years studying wild Mustangs in the Nevada foothills. After observing thousands of these horses, he began to recognise a pattern to their behaviour. He could predict how each would interact with each other, which horse would become leader of the herd and exactly how the leader would accept outside horses into the herd. What Monty was witnessing was the language of the horse, something he now calls Equus. In his Join Up DVD, Monty Roberts shows you how to use the natural language of horses, Equus, to train your horses without pain or fear. He calls this his Advance and Retreat Method. You will learn how to persuade an unbroken horse to accept a saddle, harness, bridle and rider in less than 30 minutes – without any struggle. This advance and retreat method of starting young horses creates a foundation of trust and instils an understanding of the behaviour man desires from the horse. This understanding will stay with the horse throughout its lifetime. Monty Roberts has used this unique method to start over 9,500 horses – from wild Mustangs to stakes-winning racehorses – Alleged, Dayjur, Lomitas and hundreds more. Not only can these methods be used on young, untrained horses, but can improve older horses which have become set in their ways. Advance and Retreat is the method being used to train young horses on top farms around the world. And now, Monty Roberts teaches you how it’s done. The volume on this DVD dips occasionally as Monty changes location.
