The Humane Society of the United States will be hosting its first national equine event, Honoring the Horse, at the New Orleans Convention Center on March 31 and April 1.
Keynote: Monty Roberts Author, “The Man Who Listens to Horses”, Founder, Join-Up International known as the “Man Who Listens to Horses” has led an extraordinary life. An award-winning trainer of championship horses, best-selling author, Hollywood stunt man, foster dad to 47 children (in addition to three of his own) and creator of the world-renowned and revolutionary equine training technique called Join-Up, Monty Roberts could now, in his later years, be resting on his laurels – but that’s not his style.
Roberts has won countless awards and received immense worldwide press coverage, put three books on the New York Times best-seller list, trained some of Queen Elizabeth II’s equestrian team in London and been awarded an honorary doctorate from the University of Zurich. But if you go looking for Monty Roberts, you won’t find him lounging in his favorite chair high up in the hills overlooking his horse-training farm in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley.
Attendees will learn from leading experts in their field on a variety of issues related to horse care and well-being and advocacy, as well as network with fellow devotees. The event is geared toward anyone who owns horses, is considering owning a horse, trains horses for competition, cares about the welfare of horses, or wants to improve their understanding of all things equine.
