November 29, 2017 Solvang, California: Monty Roberts is in his 27th year of touring the globe, demonstrating methods of nonviolent training of horses brought to him by members of the audience, both in the saddle and from the ground. The best nights of each tour are edited into a show Roberts calls Backstage Pass of the most challenging and endearing horses from tour. Just released on Monty’s website, 13 all new episodes of Monty’s Backstage Pass television series is here The series is comprised of the most spooky horses, new starters, head shy horses, horses that won’t load, buckers, hard to mount horses, and more as they learn from their session with Monty’s gentle methods.

In a rare USA appearance, people can see Monty Roberts demonstrating his famous techniques January 6 in Temecula California at the US West Coast Dressage Festival Master Class Series. Olympians such as Boyd Martin, Laura Graves, Helen Langehanenberg and Charlotte Dujardin will also be demonstrating their talents and teaching in a series of dates in nearby Del Mar. Read more here

Another opportunity to learn from Roberts is a four part series with Martin Clunes (TV’s Doc Martin) just added to his Equus Online University interactive online lesson site. The series includes Join-Up with Martin Clunes: Ronnie the Draft Horse Needs Ground Training, Ronnie is Afraid of Crowds, Ronnie Learns to Relax, and Ronnie the Great Riding Horse. There is serious humor involved in this series as Martin needed to get Ronnie ready for the Royal Windsor Horse Show where Carl Hester would ride him but Ronnie was very afraid of the crowd noise.

Roberts told Clunes, “I scored Ronnie’s demonstration really high for educational reasons and will be adding it to my Equus Online University.” See the series here
