Our Mission

As the first Monty Roberts Certified Instructor in Africa, founder Simon Marrier d’Unienville is helping Monty Roberts achieve his goal of “leaving the world a better place than I found it, for horses, and people too.”

Our aim is to use equine-assisted programs, specifically the world-renowned methods of Monty Roberts, to reduce violence and other issues in the community.

Our mission is to reduce the endemic violence in South Africa, and across Africa, by working with at-risk youth and young communities using Monty Roberts’ Lead-Up program. We are also working with a team of international specialists to bring Equ-Us – the first equine-assisted drug and alcohol recovery program to South Africa.

And additionally, train future Monty Roberts Instructors across Africa to help spread his concepts further.

It is also intended to serve as a standard or measure to assess performance, and guide members of governing boards, and others who carry responsibility for governance.
