An exclusive evening with the grand old man of horsemanship
Despite probably being the most famous “horse-whisperer” of them all, Monty Roberts is essentially a man who listens to horses rather than whispering to them, and who probably has a command of their language like no other: he is simply a legend! EQUITANA presented an exclusive coaching session with the prize-winning trainer and bestselling author.
Actually, Monty prefers to call himself a “horse gentler” rather than horse whisperer and has shared his expertise in dealing with horses with others for over 50 years now. One of the cornerstones of his methods is non-violent communication between human and animal. His Join-Up® and Follow-Up® methods are based on the language of horses and are used all over the world in the meantime.
Join-Up® is a training method that centres on trust and horses’ natural behaviour, in particular their flight response. Using his method, Monty manages to create a bond of trust between him and a horse in a very short time. Monty Roberts has used his methods to train over 10,000 horses throughout his career.

Monty´s instructors: Franziska Görwitz
Franziska Görwitz definitely has an equine gene in her somewhere. Inspired by her observations of the free-ranging herds at her grandmother’s Holstein stables, she started from an early age looking for ways of training and dealing with horses in an intelligent and equine-friendly manner. Her focus in coaching and contact with horses is founded on creating a mutual understanding between horse and human. As such, Franziska is not only specialised in training horses but also the people who handle them every day. Furthermore, she has also actively helped develop and launch a BSc. course in “Equine Sciences” at the Free University of Berlin. She has also held lectures here since 2014 as a research assistant.
