“I communicate with a horse in what I call the Language of Equus; a silent language of gestures that is predictable and effective. Now you can learn from my videos, audio and notes to help you understand the horse as I do. This language is really quite simple, but simplicity becomes its greatest strength.” ~ Monty

Who is it for?
Everyone! Young and old! There are lessons for children, adults, professionals and amateurs. Monty says “Adrenalin up, learning down. Adrenalin down, learning up.” Monty will give you the knowledge to convey to your horse a calm, confident leadership. This learning environment will have huge benefits for the non-equestrian as well. See your relationships at home and at work improve, just because you begin to be aware of how you communicate. The whole format is very easy to use, even if computers aren’t your thing!

What was Monty’s dream?
“My desire has always been to have the maximum positive affect on you and your horse. In 2004 we began filming thousands of hours of my problem solving demonstrations to be able to launch this tool in 2009 and share these skills with the world.

I am fortunate to be able to teach people, on every continent, to have better communication skills with their horses. I have learned what a horse needs in order to trust you and to be a Willing Partner. And I want to share these skills with you.” ~Monty

What does it cost?
Monty priced his Uni for everyone to be able to afford it. It is only $59.99 for a six-month subscription or you can choose the twelve month option at $99.99 for unlimited access to a wealth of information from arguably the world’s best horse trainer.

What will I learn?
No matter what your background with horses, Monty guarantees that his ideas and techniques will change how you and your horse learn. Monty created a hugely varied syllabus that he is constantly adding to as he trains new horses and has breakthrough ideas. There is a new lesson added EVERY week! See below in great detail.

What are students saying about
Equus Online University?

“It is thanks to Monty’s join-up and university lessons that my nervous horse, 9 year, mare, ex-racehorse, two months with me, now: follows me when I want to take her out of the field, without a rope! She just keeps following me! I am astonished! … I tell everyone about the university when they observe that my horse has changed so much in such a short time. Thanks for everything, I will help you spread your non-violent message!”- Jessica

“Thanks again for this terrific opportunity learning the communication secrets of the equine on-line. This was money and time well spent. I can’t thank you enough.”- morsemaryjo

“The whole uni platform is perfectly presented, easy and very interesting to use. The audios are so so precious to me. Thank you for adding them!”- Vio

“What a fantastic job you have done with the Equus Online University.” – Executive Director, Horse Radio Network

For those of us who learn differently it is very helpful to be able to have your wonderful information in multiple formats, visual, audible and written.” – Ekat

“Dear Monty and team! You make me so happy with your lessons! I use it every time a question arises in my mind. I have the question, you the answer!” With kind regards, Jessica L.

...many thanks for a very good work on this university site, it's very easy to navigate and I think it's good idea that
you “select“ the courses for me so that I don't rush things ;o)
I've read “The man who listens to horses” and “From my hands to yours” so it's very nice to be able to watch the videos
and really get the grip of how to do things.” Ducka
