Monty Roberts’ Join Up

From Monty Roberts’ Join Up website:

Known as, “The Man Who Listens to Horses,” Monty gained international fame by developing a method of communicating with horses using their natural body language and a technique he calls Join-Up. Founded on a consistent set of principles, communication, and trust, Monty’s methods assert that violence is never the answer. The Join-Up message has inspired new ways of thinking outside of horse training as well. Today it is being applied successfully by corporations, governmental agencies, school administrators, at-risk-youth, violent offenders and many others.
