June 17-19, 2022 Solvang, California: The Movement Event was a transformational experience with humans and horses featuring Monty Roberts and many more outstanding presenters and held at Flag Is Up Farms.
Since 2018 Monty Roberts and other leading experts have been coming together at the annual Movement event to demonstrate & share their latest discoveries. The Movement is inspired by a love for horses, the ambition to impact their lives as positively as they impact ours & the belief that together we can drive positive change.
The 5th anniversary edition had the largest variety of horse related demonstrations & discoveries to date. It was designed to experience everything from gentling wild horses, to groundwork & trailer loading, to riding a Mountain trail course. From holistic health and hoof consults, to bodywork for the horse and for the rider. From barn and business advice, to sharing stories, to a private Templeton Thompson concert.
On June 17 and 18 at the California Horse Center on the beautiful Flag Is Up Farms on California’s central coast, there was a special addition of private sessions offered on Sunday June 19 for those who wanted hands-on learning from the masterful presenters.
The fifth annual event set out to show how horses are the unsung heroes of many parts of our life. Horses have unprecedented healing power and they help us learn, lead and live better. Those who made the journey experienced outstanding humans & horses who change the world (and maybe us too). Music was performed by Templeton Thompson and the inspiration was given by talented trainers and inspired horse owners which makes this series of 20 videos, with sessions over three days invaluable.

MONTY ROBERTS AVAILABLE FOR SELECT INTERVIEWS:
The New York Times bestselling author and world-renowned horse trainer Monty Roberts is available for interviews.
MONTY ROBERTS first gained widespread fame with the release of his New York Times Best Selling book, The Man Who Listens To Horses; a chronicle of his life and development of his non-violent horse training methods called Join-Up®. Monty grew up on a working horse farm as a firsthand witness to traditional, often violent methods of horse training and breaking the spirit with an abusive hand. Rejecting that, he went on to win nine world’s championships in the show ring. Today, Monty’s goal is to share his message that “Violence is never the answer.” Roberts has been encouraged by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II with the award of the Membership in The Royal Victorian Order, as well as becoming Patron of Join-Up International. Other honors received were the ASPCA “Founders” award and the MSPCA George T. Angell Humanitarian Award and FEI’s Man of the Year. Monty was recently included as Horse and Hound Magazine’s Top 50 Horsemen of All Time. Monty is credited with launching the first of its kind Equus Online University; an interactive online lesson site that is the definitive learning tool for violence-free training.
THE MOVEMENT “A movement started in the horse industry when horse owners began to have a clearer vision of how horses affected humans in positive way. Inspired by how interchangeable the lessons from herd behavior were, I’ve watched trainers, teachers, mothers and managers become better communicators, leaders and influencers for good. This year’s presenters are each amazing in their industries and they all have a vision of a better world, inspired by incorporating horses in their own story. They come to share that vision and build on it with participants who will take home a life-changing plan. Leaders may inspire, but only when people choose to act does a vision become a movement,” said Debbie Roberts Loucks who manages the event.
This unique event helps you better understand problem solving using violence-free training methods. People come and spend time with like-minded people absorbing what non-violent communication can be and enjoy discussions with Monty and students from around the world.
