Monty Roberts and Shy Boy

Monty Roberts and Shy Boy the Mustang. Monty used Join-Up with Shy Boy in the wild during 1997, and he resides to this day at Flag Is Up Farms with the Roberts family. 

Monty Roberts is a world-renowned advocate of non-violent training for horses, who has spent all of his life working and competing with them. First taking note of the silent body language that occurred among wild Mustangs in Nevada, that Monty later called Equus, he developed a training method known as Join-Up. During the late 1980's, Monty was invited by Queen Elizabeth II to demonstrate his work at Windsor Castle, and she later gave him the encouragement to write a book called "The Man Who Listens to Horses". Her Majesty has since become a patron of the non-profit Join-Up International, founded by the Roberts family in 1997.

The process of Join-Up® has become not only a tool for the benefit of horses, but for the benefit of people as well. Relationships can be strengthened on the job, and with children as well, by applying Monty's methods. A program has even been developed called Horse Sense and Healing, which is offered freely to veterans, first responders, and their families by creating a hands-on relationship with a horse over a three day period. This exercise of trust and gentleness has greatly helped the participants in overcoming stress-related problems such as anxiety and anger.



For those who wish to learn more about non-violent training, Monty launched the Equus Online University in 2009. Here, you can sign up for a membership that allows unlimited access to instructional videos on the site. A free, weekly email called Ask Monty also features direct responses by Mr. Roberts to user-submitted questions.
