The Mayor of Grantham met one of his heroes last week when world famous horse whisperer Monty Roberts appeared at Arena UK in Allington.
The Mayor, Coun Ian Selby, said Mr Roberts’ visit to the arena was one of the highlights of his year in office so far.
Coun Selby said: “Having trained horses myself in the past, I greatly admire the work of Monty Roberts and his assistant Kelly Marks. It is amazing to watch world renowned horse whisperer Monty’s non violent methods of training and breaking-in horses and curing them of complicated problems. Monty regularly works on horses owned by Her Majesty Queen. In addition he has taught children about positive relationships and has fostered 47 children”.
