movie eras and themes. The show will take audiences on a journey
back in time to ancient Rome, to the court of King Arthur, on to
the wild west for a real cowboy experience, over to Europe for a
glimpse of classical beauty on horseback, and into outback Australia
for some true "Sunburnt Country" music, horsemanship and
Renowned American performer, TAD GRIFFITH, riding star of films
such as "The Mask of Zorro" and The Patriot", will
execute a two-horse performance of 'Roman Riding', then join two
of Australia's best trickriders in a series of daredevil stunts
that will leave you gasping for breath. Our brilliant Sydney 2000
Opening Ceremony quadrille team has designed an all new and action
packed 16-horse musical ride and Aussie favourite, TANIA KERNAGHAN,
will be joined by top reining stars in a spinning and sliding country
Beautiful Senoritas in satins and silks on their white Spanish horses
will perform an elegant dance with a magnificent Friesian partner,
and riding stars from the hit movie "A Knights Tale" will
captivate you with a jousting tournament in full medieval costume.

River" show, STEVE
JEFFERYS will provide plenty of thrills and laughs with an ALL NEW

MONTY ROBERTS The Man Who Listens to Horses
Monty Roberts identifies himself as "the man who listens to
horses." Using his Join-Up* method involving kindness and communication,
he can start a horse to saddle, bridle and rider in an average of
Monty demonstrates Join-Up® by standing in the centre of an
enclosed 50 foot round pen. In approximately 30 minutes Monty will
have convinced the horse to approach him in the ring, stand in the
center of the ring without being tied, and follow Monty around the
pen without a lead rope or other restraint. Monty will then persuade
the horse to allow a saddle and blanket on its back while it stands
unrestrained, accept its first bridle, allow a rider to mount, and
carry that rider in both directions around the pen.
Monty's method involves horse and trainer establishing a bond of
communication and trust. "You must somehow understand that
we as horsemen can do very little to teach the horse. What we can
do is to create an environment in which he can learn", explains
The message of Join-Up® and "advance and retreat"
goes well beyond horses. The lesson is also about philosophies of
communication. Monty has consulted with several corporations, translating
his theories about rewarding positive behavior. He puts on corporate
communication events, using the horse as a model, and teaches people
how much more can be accomplished with kindness and non-confrontational
behavior-shaping techniques, than can be accomplished with harshness
Don't miss out on seeing Monty demonstrate his expertise in his
only major Australian appearance in 2002!
