Brooke USA, sister charity of Brooke, the official charity of the FEI World Equestrian Games™ Tryon 2018, has announced that renowned horseman Monty Roberts will be among their presenters at the games this September in North Carolina.
Monty Roberts, known as the “Man Who Listens to Horses,” is also an official Global Ambassador for Brooke. He has made it his lifelong mission to leave the world a better place for horses and people.
Concurrently, for more than 80 years, Brooke, the world’s largest international equine welfare charity, has been dedicated to improving the lives of working horses, donkeys and mules and the families they support in the developing world.
This aligned mission and Monty’s global impact on the welfare of equines is the impetus for Brooke USA to partner with Monty to present demonstrations of his work during the games.
Monty is perhaps best known for creating the revolutionary equine training technique called “Join-Up®.” He has won countless awards and received immense worldwide press coverage, put three books on the New York Times best-seller list, helped start Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s race horses in England and been awarded an honorary doctorate from the University of Zurich.
The demonstrations will take place on September 19th and 20th. In one, Monty will work with an American Mustang to demonstrate the “Horse Sense & Healing” program for veterans and first responders. Monty will demonstrate the power of horses to teach resiliency and trust by inviting a veteran with little - to no - horse experience, assisted by Monty and a horse to achieve “Join-Up.”
The second day Monty will demonstrate successful ways to work with a remedial issue in a horse.
The mission of Brooke USA is to significantly improve the welfare of working horses, donkeys and mules and the people they serve throughout Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Latin America by raising funds and responsibly directing them to the areas of greatest need. Working primarily through Brooke, Brooke USA funds scientifically proven, practical, sustainable and culturally relevant solutions to enormous equine welfare challenges.

MONTY ROBERTS first gained widespread fame with the release of his New York Times Best Selling book, The Man Who Listens To Horses; a chronicle of his life and development of his non-violent horse training methods called Join-Up®. Monty grew up on a working horse farm as a firsthand witness to traditional, often violent methods of horse training and breaking the spirit with an abusive hand. Rejecting that, he went on to win nine world's championships in the show ring. Today, Monty's goal is to share his message that "Violence is never the answer." Roberts has been encouraged by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II with the award of the Membership in The Royal Victorian Order, as well as becoming Patron of Join-Up International. Other honors received were the ASPCA "Founders" award and the MSPCA George T. Angell Humanitarian Award and FEI’s Man of the Year. Monty was recently included as Horse and Hound Magazine’s Top 50 Horsemen of All Time. Monty is credited with launching the first of its kind Equus Online University; an interactive online lesson site that is the definitive learning tool for violence-free training.
JOIN-UP philosophies can be seen at work with both humans and horses across the world, from farms to major corporations.

Horse Sense and Soldiers aired on Discovery Military highlighting the therapeutic effect that horses and Monty Roberts' Join-Up® have on PTSD. Roberts has teamed with The Corporate Learning Institute to help transfer the key learning’s from his work to the workplace.
