Shy Boy, Monty Robert’s mustang companion, is finally telling his story…through his eyes and interpreted by Monty Roberts.
Beautifully illustrated, his tale is a compelling read for people of all ages.
Shy Boy’s life begins in the Nevada mountains, where he is born into a herd of wild American mustangs. Seeing the world through his eyes, you experience his first encounter with the humans who capture him from the wild as a three-year-old stallion. His surprise at meeting Monty, a man who moves and speaks like a horse, develops into a bond of trust that will last a lifetime.
Shy Boy takes us on a unique journey through the mind of the horse, encountering obstacles, challenges and rewarding experiences. His confident yet questioning nature makes him a natural storyteller as he recounts the amazing journey life has taken him on.
An utterly unique and uplifting adventure story, you will find yourself falling in love with this horse and his message.
Watch Monty and a student use desensitisation to cause your horse to accept such potential “predators” as plastic bags and balloons. Have
more fun with your horse by enjoying routines that take your horse from wild and spooky to relaxed and happy.
