The Movement 2023 Moves Horses and Humans

by Sharon Jantzen

Healthy horses need movement. Movement means a lot to horses, no matter the breed, age, size or discipline. Healthy humans need movement, both physical and mental.

Movement brings about a change or development. Since 1989, Monty Roberts has been advocating movement in our thinking towards a better way to be with our horses, whether training, housing, or simply how our bodies move around them.

The Movement 2022 was a transformational experience with humans and horses featuring Monty Roberts and many outstanding presenters. The annual event is held at the California Horse Center on Flag Is Up Farms, in Solvang, California.

Coming to the Central Coast of California is The Movement 2023. Held in the heart of horse and wine country, the California Horse Center on Flag Is Up Farms in Solvang, CA. The Movement 2023 boasts a line-up of talent: trainers, practitioners and the musician Jared Rogerson!

History of The Movement Event

The Movement Event

Since 2018, Monty Roberts and other leading experts have been coming together at his annual The Movement event to demonstrate and 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 and the belief that together we can drive positive change.

The 6th anniversary edition will feature the gentling of wild horses, groundwork, ridden work across disciplines, riding a Mountain trail course and Working Equitation. From holistic health and hoof consults, to bodywork for the horse and for the rider. We’ve added Will Friday and the Masterson Method demonstration to the three-day event. It’s all about health, happiness and horses.

Jamie Jennings returns to work with Monty and the team of trainers. She is the well-known podcast host of Horses In the Morning show and also Trainer of the Year for the Right Horse Program of the ASPCA. She is also a Monty Roberts Certified Instructor in Oklahoma.

The wine and charcuterie evening will return and lunches are included on the beautiful grounds of the Roberts’ renowned farm.

Horses have unprecedented healing power and they help us learn, lead and live better. Those who make the journey experience outstanding humans and horses who change the world, one heart at a time.

Come move your journey with horses at The Movement 2023 June 16, 17, 18, 2023 at the California Horse Center on Flag Is Up Farms in Solvang, CA.

Monty Roberts International Learning Center


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.

JOIN-UP philosophies can be seen at work with both humans and horses across the world, from farms to major corporations. To learn more about Monty Roberts or the many applications of his Join-Up training methods, visit Horse Sense and Soldiers aired on Discovery Military in 2010 highlighting the therapeutic effect horses and Monty Roberts’ Join-Up® have on PTSD. Soon after Monty and his team developed the Horse Sense & Healing program for veterans and first responders. Lead-Up International was officially launched worldwide at the Monty Roberts International Learning Center in Solvang, California, in February 2017. The purpose of Lead-Up International is to reduce violence in the community by creating peaceful leaders from vulnerable youth utilizing equine-assisted therapy and non-verbal communication, building trust-based relationships.
