These exclusive weekend ‘Perfect Manners’ courses are fully endorsed by Monty Roberts and run by the only qualified teacher and holder of his ‘Advanced Professional Certificate’, former European Champion lady rider, Kelly Marks.

During these two days you will learn:

  • Ways to achieve trust and bonding with any horse
  • How to use Monty Roberts Join Up and Follow Up techniques
  • How to long line
  • Some Essential Horse Psychology
  • Leading and Handling Horses
  • Common Mistakes to Avoid
  • What your body language says to horses
  • The concepts that have revolutionised horsemanship

These very pleasurable although intensive courses are suitable for everyone from the absolute novice to the experienced horseperson. Generally the minimum student age is 16 years but we will consider very keen younger students who must be accompanied by a parent or a guardian (as a participant or spectator).

There is a high tutor/student ratio as well as personal tuition from Kelly. You are encouraged to discuss exactly what you are happy to do and can then receive individual instruction to stretch yourself as much or as little as you wish.

Each student will have the opportunity to go into the round pen twice and practice body language leading to ‘join up’ under instruction with one of our many horses as well as long lining in the pen which could include obstacles or jumping. You are welcome to bring your own horse if arranged in advance.

Non “hands-on” students are most welcome at the cost of £30 per day. Please see ‘dates and prices’, and ‘application form’.

Each participating student completing the course will be awarded a certificate stating completion.

If student’s wish to refresh their skills we are offering £100.00 discount on the cost of a Five Day Foundation or Perfect Manners Course if you have attended either course previously.
