As the first Monty Roberts Certified Instructor in Africa, Horses 4 Hope founder Simon Marrier d’Unienville is helping Monty Roberts achieve his goal of “leaving the world a better place then I found it, for horses, and people too.”
Horses 4 Hope’s aims to train Monty Roberts Certified Instructors in each country around Africa – so they, in turn, can utilize equine-assisted programs, specifically the world-renowned methods of Monty Roberts, to reduce violence and other issues in their communities.
Rachel Buckland was lucky to be accepted into the Horses 4 Hope Bursary Programme and has received 2 weeks of intensive training at their facility in Johannesburg in July. We wish Rachel all the best as she returns to Johannesburg to write her Monty Roberts Exam this month.
“This initiative is very much in line with the role we see Dassenberg playing within our community and we are delighted that one of our Volunteers is learning these skills. This will help us play a meaningful role in helping to reduce violence and animal abuse in our area.” Hugo Tickner
