The purpose of this questionnaire is to compare opinions specifically between Traditional Methods and Monty Roberts’ Methods, therefore a minimal knowledge of Monty Robert's methods is desirable, but not required. Other training methods such as Parelli, Clicker Training, etc. do not need to be taken into consideration.
Marvin Earl "Monty" Roberts is an American horse trainer who promotes his techniques of natural horsemanship through his Join-Up International organization, named after the core concept of his training method. Roberts believes that horses use a non-verbal language, which he terms "Equus," and that humans can use this language to communicate with horses. Roberts has authored a number of books including his original best-seller, The Man Who Listens to Horses, and regularly tours with a live demonstration. (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monty_Roberts)
Traditional Horse Training stems from the Military and early domestication of the horse. More recent associations that promote traditional training methods are the British Horse Society, the Spanish Riding School and other European Riding Schools. These methods have been very successful at training horses to do what we want them to do (Vicki Jones, 2015. naylors.com/blog/natural-horsemanship-versus-traditional-horse-training/)
