I think I am pretty much sold on Monty Roberts. I always liked his ideas from when I was younger, reading Heartland books about Join-up, but its just so much more real doing it yourself!
I haven't joined up yet cause I lack a round pen & my pasture is wayy to big to try join-up in, but I looked at the series of videos about catching horses in the pasture and today I tried it! I was able to catch my horses quickly and more importantly they only tried to run away once! And they stopped once I kept using Monty's techniques.
All the body language that we are subconciously communicating to them is astounding. No wonder they don't co-opearate how we want them to sometimes. I can see a much happier and brighter future for all of the horses I come into contact with, now that I'm aware of body language so much more!
Thankyou Monty Roberts and Equus University :)
