These world exclusive five day foundation courses are fully endorsed by Monty Roberts. They are run by his only British/European Master Instructor, Kelly Marks.

You will need to be a member of the Intelligent Horsemanship Association so Join IH now (if not already a member) so you can start practicing with online footage and be super ready before the course!
Each person will have the opportunity to go into the round pen a minimum of four times to practice ‘Join Up™’ with a variety of horses under supervision. You are welcome to bring your own horse if arranged in advance with Ian Vandenberghe (Tel: 01993 868914).
Each student has the opportunity to do 3 Join Up™ without tack, 2 ‘full’ Join-Up™ with tack and long lining in the pen, 1 individual training halter session, 1 individual long lining session, 1 replay of video session with tutor for feedback and discussion, as much additional human to human body language as they choose. On Wednesday or Thursday, instead of a ‘Join-Up™ with tack session’, you can have an additional long lining session, or JUST LET US KNOW what you feel would be most useful to you and we will do our best to accommodate.
Each student completing the course will be issued with a certificate stating completion which may be used against future certification of the Intelligent Horsemanship Diploma and the Monty Roberts Introductory Course of Horsemanship. From here you may wish to become a Monty Roberts Instructor by completing your training at Flag is Up Farms, California or to become an Intelligent Horsemanship Recommended Trainer.
