Monty Roberts Certified Instructors


“My greatest accomplishment was learning to be gentle; without that I feel I would have achieved nothing.” ~ Monty Roberts

Johan Hofmans is certified as a Monty Roberts Instructor, an Engineer (Agriculture), a riding and therapeutic riding instructor, as well as a trekking leader. Besides managing the first Monty Roberts Learning Center in France (Join-Up®, Follow-Up clinics, Introductory Courses), Johan and his wife Sylvie-Anne run a breeding farm and a certified riding school and training center for riding instructors and trekking leaders. As a Monty Roberts Instructor he wants to share the Monty Roberts philosophy with riders, in order to help them create a better relationship with horses. He is passionate about starting horses and dealing with remedial horses. Johan is fluent in Dutch, French, German and English.
Adrien is from Saint-Malo in Brittany, France where at the age of three he discovered horses and has loved them ever since! He started competing in Show Jumping at the age of eight, and was a member of the French team from the age of 18 to 23. It was around that time he discovered he preferred working to help improve the connection between the horse and the human. For this reason he tries to encompass Monty’s methods in all areas of working with horses. Adrien gained his certification in the spring of 2008 and is now teaching Monty’s concepts in France. In the future, Adrien is looking forward to focusing on courses for young children in riding centers. He believes that through children’s influence we can make a positive difference in the lives of horses.
The reason for Jana to work with horses is pure love. Horse sports and competition never made much sense to her and she considers the life with horses and moving together in balance as an artistic process. Jana is a licensed trainer and riding teacher and holds a degree in journalism, specialized in equine behavior. She offers Monty Roberts classes in France and South America on request and is happy to share her passion in English, French, German, Spanish and Portuguese.
