“My greatest accomplishment was learning to be gentle; without that I feel I would have achieved nothing.” ~ Monty Roberts
Miguel Lupiano was born in Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil. Today he lives in Brasília, Brazil’s capital. He started dealing with horses when he was a child in his grandfather’s farm. He became a professional horse trainer at the age of seventeen. Since then it has been more than thirty years working with all breed of horses. After all those years, looking for the best techniques to deal with horses, Miguel became the first Latin American Monty Roberts Certified Instructor in April 2015. He had an opportunity to participate in the Horse Sense and Soldiers Clinic, and to bring those experiences to help people use the horse and the Join Up method somehow. Miguel’s location, right in the center of Brazil, allows him to travel throughout the country, south and Central America, to give courses and clinics, horse training, lectures, presentations and demonstrations, advice, projects and staff training.
