An award winning trainer of championship horses, best selling author and creator of the world-renowned and revolutionary equine training technique and philosophy called Join-Up®
AN INVITATION TO JOIN-UP
Monty first developed
Join Up® to stop the cycle of violence typically accepted in
traditional horse breaking and training. Convinced there must be a
more effective and gentle method, he created a non violent training
system using the horse’s own methods of communication and herd
behaviour now known worldwide as Join–Up. The objective of Join-Up is
to create a willing “partnership” in which the horse’s performance can
flourish to its full potential, rather than exist within the boundaries
of forced obedience.
The Join- Up training method relies on
horse and owner or trainer establishing a bond of mutual communication,
respect and trust. “You must come to understand that we as horsemen
can do very little to teach the horse, what we can do is to create a
safe and comfortable environment in which he can learn”.
principles found in Join-Up provide a non violent basis for all work
with horses by Riders, Trainers, Veterinarians, Vet Techs, Farriers and
Stud Managers – virtually anyone who works with horses can use these
methods to increase their understanding and effectiveness in helping
horses fulfil their potential.
The products featured on this

Equipment that will assist you to become a better horseman and help
