Initially, successful candidates will participate in the 2-week Monty Roberts Introductory Course of Horsemanship, held at our facilities in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Following on this, you will return home to continue practicing what you have learned. By sending us videos you can continue to receive our feedback on your work. It is also during this period that you study theory on horse performance, breeding, feeding and nutrition. When we determine that you are ready (usually 6 to 8 months), you will return to Johannesburg for the 1-week practical and written Monty Roberts Introductory Exam.
Of the students who pass their practical and written exams, a select few will be chosen to continue on to the 3-week Advanced Course, held at Flag Is Up Farms in California, USA. After a further 12 to 18 months of field study, select students will return to Flag Is Up Farms for the 2-week practical and written Monty Roberts Advanced Exam.
Those students who successfully pass their Advanced Exam and show sufficient commitment and dedication to furthering Monty Roberts methods in their home country in Africa will be invited to stay for a 3-month internship at Flag Is Up Farms, at which point they will graduate as a Monty Roberts Certified Instructor.
