Question: Why does your horse follow you around?

What is Join-Up®? I’d love for my horses to follow me around the paddock.

Monty’s Answer:

Join-Up® is that moment in time when the horse chooses to be with you instead of away from you. While Join-Up® is also the title for the full body of work that I do this term comes from that very moment when the handler through communication gains sufficient respect so that the animal prefers to be in their presence rather than away from them.
