Expert Horse Trainer Demonstrates Nonviolent Method To Saddle Horse For The First Time In Under 30 Minutes

September 14, 2018

While tracking wild mustangs in Nevada as a boy, Monty Roberts observed a nonverbal communication between the horses, a silent language he would later call "Equus." Monty incorporates this communication into his nonviolent training approach he calls "Join-Up."

Monty first developed Join-Up to stop the cycle of violence typically accepted in traditional horse breaking. Convinced there must be a more effective and gentle method, Monty created these consistent set of principles using the horse's inherent methods of communication and herd behavior. 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. These principles are valuable tools to understanding what motivates horse behavior and increasing effectiveness in any application.

In the video below, Monty puts a bridle, saddle and a rider on a horse for the first time in under 30 minutes. It's incredible to watch.
