Did you know that you could do the exact same Monty Roberts Course that you would do in the California-based Monty Roberts Learning Centre (MRLC) but right here, in India? 

Did you know that by doing your Monty Roberts Course here, with us in India, you will get the exact same diploma as if you did it in the US?

You’re in the right place if: 
-You want to do an officially recognised Monty Roberts Course but you can’t go to the US (for whatever reason, financial, time or even visa constraints)
-You want to combine the course with an experience in India, including working with the incredible Marwari breed of horses 
-You’re planning a career with horses 
-You want an internationally recognised diploma 

Manjeev is currently the only person in Asia who is certified to conduct official Monty Roberts courses. 

MNH Academy is the only place in India where you can get an internationally recognised horsemanship qualification. These diplomas are recognised worldwide under the official California-based Monty Roberts International Centre. 

The Monty Roberts Learning Centre in California is a wonderful place, I would do know, I spent a lot of time there. I went there over several years, doing my certification and working with exceptional people and horses. One of my highlight will always be working with wild mustangs! 

However, not everyone can afford the finance or time to go all the way to the US. It may even be a visa issue for some. You might want to have access to the highly qualitative learning and internationally recognised diploma while staying in your home country of India. Or, perhaps, you’re not from India but would like to combine discovering a new place, working with different breed of horses and just generally an adventure by coming to us to do the course.

The Monty Roberts Introductory Course of Horsemanship is the first step to gaining an in-depth understanding of Monty Roberts’ concepts. The course is suitable for students of any age (16+), and all levels of equine experience (your instructor will pair you with horses and tasks suited to your abilities). However, as it is a 2-week, intensive course, for those with little or no horse knowledge, we recommend prior participation in a Horsemanship 101 Clinic (or taking the course modular format).


Through demonstrations, practical sessions, and classroom discussions you will be provided with a well-rounded knowledge in the basics of horse care, performance, breeding, feeding and nutrition, with a strong emphasis on horse psychology. As the foundation of Monty Roberts’ work and a prerequisite for the Advanced Course, you will learn the method of Join-Up® as it relates to various environments. You will have the opportunity to build your skills in Dually® halter work, long-lining, herding exercises, horse desensitization and trailer loading.


This course can be taken as a stand-alone tool to improve your communication and relationship with your horse, or as a step towards becoming a Monty Roberts Certified Instructor.
