The legendary “Horse Whisperer,” Monty Roberts, is running FREE special three-day workshops for Warriors, Veterans and their Families. Join-Up offers everyone an effective tool to rediscover themselves through the eyes of the horse. This self-awareness exercise deals effectively with emotional trauma, anti-social behavior and withdrawal, anger, stress, combat stress and even PTSD.
Roberts holds two PhDs in Behavioral Sciences. In these workshops, he demonstrates the deeply healing power of establishing a trusting relationship with horses without the use of force. With his soft-spoken, nurturing style, Roberts assists veterans as they learn to cause a partnership with the horse. After three transformational days, veterans can better understand how to control their anger, confront painful memories, cope with real-life situations and move on with their lives and relationships.
We have been working with veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), over the course of six separate recent clinics this year. The results are coming in and the outcome is fantastic. We have veterans laughing and getting back to a normal life who have been afflicted with PTSD for upwards of 35 years. All the way from Vietnam to Afghanistan, these injured warriors come home in a terrible state and need our help to get back to the civilized world. The horses are doing their work with incredible efficiency. — Monty Roberts
