"I’m pleased to be kicking off the Masterclass Series with Boyd Martin who has one of the biggest hearts in the equestrian world, both for his horses and for his sport” said Monty Roberts about the January 6 event in Temecula where he will be demonstrating his Join-Up methods with dressage horses. 

The festival dates start January 6 and finish up in Del Mar on February 17 with a variety of demonstrations from Laura Graves, Helen Langehanenberg and Charlotte Dujardin. 

Roberts added, "Promoter, Scott Hayes has put together an ambitious schedule bringing world class talents to the West coast of California.

Scott Hayes said “We are also happy to announce our presenters, world champions Edward Gal who will work with the FEI level horses and riders, Hans Peter Minderhoud, who will work with the young horse and stallion combinations with demonstrations provided by Monty Roberts, starting young dressage horses with his Join-Up method.

This will be held at El Campeon Farms in Thousand Oaks, California. Shopping will be plentiful; the venue will be intimate. We cannot wait for this exciting fifth anniversary convention."

Monty Roberts will be demonstrating his practical techniques to help horses from the ground and with ridden challenges. Roberts' first public demonstrations were in the United States beginning in 1986. They were limited to two or three public demonstrations per year.

It was April of 1989 that he was invited by Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II to demonstrate at Windsor Castle. At the conclusion of one week’s work, Her Majesty arranged for 21 cities and 98 horses more, added to the 23 horses Roberts worked with at Windsor in a five-day period of time. The total on the trip was 121 horses.
