Monty Roberts Certified Instructors

South Africa

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

SIMON MARRIER D’UNIENVILLE
SIMON MARRIER D’UNIENVILLE
Simon became the first Monty Roberts Certified Instructor in Africa in August 2018. He is also one of only 14 Lead-Up® Instructors world-wide – a ground-breaking Monty Roberts program that has been scientifically proven to reduce violence in at-risk youth.

Simon, in partnership with Kris Robins (Horse Sense & Healing program developer), has created and piloted Equ-Us™ – the world’s first program that combines Monty Roberts’ horsemanship with Motivational Interviewing (Dr William Miller and Stephen Rollnick’s globally acclaimed counselling method that helps people resolve ambivalent feelings and insecurities to find the internal motivation they need to change their behaviour). Their Equ-Us program uses the combination of these two closely paralleled techniques, and the healing power of horses, to help those currently seeking help in an addiction recovery program.

In 2020 Simon was invited to work as the Resident Instructor at the Monty Roberts International Learning Center in California. Although no longer resident on the continent, Simon is working to grow the instructor base across Africa to further spread Monty’s non-violent concepts. A number of instructors are available to hold courses in South Africa and other African countries for those interested in learning the concepts.

Additionally several of Simon’s South African students are working towards their goal of being newly certified in Monty’s concepts.
