At connected Horsemanship we are often asked about the merits of round penning horses. We believe this technique is invaluable when it is well done. 

I work with horses in this manner when we can but round pens are not largely available around Ireland so I feel it is important for people to learn how to achieve the same result when they are working the horse on line. I therefore I teach both techniques, for more information see  

Connected horsemanship is delighted to announce that Monty Roberts will be coming to the Dublin horse show and he will be demonstrating his method of round penning, see also
