The legendary “Horse Whisperer,” Monty Roberts, is running free, resilience-building workshops for veterans and their families. The three-day program involves working closely with horses.

The individuals and horses develop a special bond built upon mutual trust and respect. Join-Up offers everyone an effective tool to rediscover themselves through the eyes of the horse. This self-awareness exercise deals effectively with emotional trauma, anti-social behavior and withdrawal, anger, stress, combat stress and even Post Traumatic Stress Injury (PTSI).

Roberts holds two Ph.D.s in Behavioral Sciences. In these workshops, he demonstrates the deeply healing power of establishing a trusting relationship with horses without the use of force. With his soft-spoken, nurturing style, Roberts assists veterans as they learn to cause a partnership with the horse.

After three transformational days, veterans can better understand how to control their anger, confront painful memories, cope with real-life situations and move on with their lives and relationships.

Roberts prefers the term ‘injury' or PTSI over Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD, saying, “I don’t believe our psychology fraternity is doing anything to give our returnees a better life with the term disorder,” Roberts has developed this novel approach to working with veterans using horses.
