I was working strictly with mounting and dismounting from both sides with Alex today. From the dismounted position I saw some folks from the therapy group making there way towards where Alex and I were. So I ask Alex if he wanted to go over and meet the folks: I talk a lot, but know a horse as not a clue as to what I'm saying. So we got over to the group. I would say 8 to 10 folk. One of the therapist told the folks about Alex. I mentioned that I was promoting Mr. Roberts method and that I was no trainer just a student of the Equus Online University. I pointed to the “Monty Roberts” monogram on the Dully Halter. I explain its a non-violent method of training and that the horse is a willing partner in the relationship. So to show them how Alex will just follow me around I turn away. Alex immediately turned with me then knelt down and started rolling in the dirt; tack, saddle and all! Well I just laughed and thanked Alex for making a fool of me. Everyone laughed. After he got his big body up and shock off the dust. I turned and started walking in like a figure 8. I could hear the excitement from some, as Alex just freely followed me around. Then for some reason I decided to just turn my body around in a circle planted in one spot. Alex kept his nose right at my shoulder and side pasted around me at like fast trot speed. I think it was like 1 or 2 circles. I just stops and instinctively said whoa. Alex stop exactly at the same time with his nose right on my should. I was stunned. Everyone was clapping and cheering. So in total embarrassment I took a little bow. I gave Alex a big hug, rub on the withers and told him what a good boy he was. I was really holding in my emotions. I could have never thought in my wildest dreams any horse let alone Alex would be so free and willing to participate in such an unnatural like motion. But most importantly, I told everyone "It wasn't me." By using Mr. Roberts method of non-violence and the language of Equus, they too could do the same thing. I truly hope the therapy group director hears about what happened today. I have told other her (the director) therapists in therapy group about Join-Up. Since they have several therapy horse of their own. I think Join-Up, with follow up, could be an invaluable tool for them.
