The trainer I work with said he went to a Monty Roberts clinic and watched the stuff he did with horses that were supposedly untrained and he'd never worked with before and stuff and how he was getting them to do all these things within minutes that they couldn't do before or were afraid to do. After the clinic he talked to his friend who lived in the town the clinic was going on in and he said Monty had been working with the horses he used in the clinic for a week before and he'd watched him work with those same horses he used in the clinic that were supposedly "untrained" and "he'd never worked with before". He said Monty is one of the biggest frauds in the training industry and pretty good at being deceiving. That's what he said....
I don't buy into his techniques, and I've read his books and stuff.
Sit tall in the saddle, hold your head up high. Keep your eyes fixed where the trail meets the sky. And live like you ain't afraid to die. Don't be scared, just enjoy your ride - Chris LeDoux
