About Me

The focus of my journey is now on trying to help reach the tipping point in positive, scientific based horse training. To bring science into the work, and training out of the dark ages. Having seen the joy that positive reinforcement training brings to both partners in the horse - human relationship over the past 17 or so years, there is no going back...

Have you ever wondered if you could train a horse using the same scientific principles that are widely used in the dog and zoo worlds? And if you could why would you want to?

All of the clinic will be taught by Monty Gwynne, aka The Ponyfairy; Canada’s only TCTT Coach. Monty has over 45 years of experience teaching, successfully training and showing in many different areas of the horse world: from coaching teams for Spruce Meadows to showing gaited horses. She has been using TCTT for well over 18 years.
Whether it is manners, tricks, higher level dressage or just to have more fun with your horse, come out and try it.
Equispeak™ is a powerful, science-based, communication system that helps creates a happier horse and a safer, more harmonious human-equine relationship.

Space is limited in the clinic and non-horse participants are not your typical auditor spots. Monty wants to make sure you go away knowing how to get started with your own horse, so there is lots of hands on for the non-horse participants as well.

For 2019 there will be spring clinics in Ontario in two locations. I will be in Germany and France late June.

If you are interested in attending any of the Clinics please  contact me through the contact form below with the event of interest and I will put you in touch with the organizer.


We have spent 4 wonderful days with Monty during an intensive clinic in Cochrane, Alberta, Canada.

Not only did we see a beautiful delicate complicity between Monty and her horses, but we learnt many precise behaviors and cues, doing ground work to prepare for driving and dressage riding.

All with great empathy.

Thank you Monty for your generosity and for meeting our requirements.

See you next year, in France ?!
