Question: Does Join-Up® take longer than conventional methods?

Does it take longer to start a horse using Join-Up® rather than conventional methods?

Monty’s Answer:

The very heart of Join-Up® is to encourage accelerated learning. Critics have said that my horses learn too fast and therefore don’t remember their lessons. Anyone aware of horses in general will immediately agree that horses have a memory far superior to human beings.

Accelerated learning refers to the act of literally learning the lesson in question and once the horse has learned a given lesson they will tend to remember if for a lifetime. I will refer to the science study, of Join-Up® verses UK conventional. Pay particular attention to the learning curve based upon two days of testing at the end of the trial.
