Monty Roberts, 82, will visit Easton and Otley College with UK instructor Kelly Marks on Saturday, October 14 to demonstrate his techniques for training horses.

Mr Roberts' career began in the 1940s as a child stunt rider in Hollywood, when he doubled for Elizabeth Taylor in National Velvet, and later for James Dean.

But in 1989 he was invited by Queen Elizabeth to give a demonstration at Windsor Castle, and sparked a friendship with the monarch.

Almost 30 years later, he still regularly visits England to work with the Queen's horses, and has written best-selling books.

He is also still an active trainer, and his current schedule includes working with military veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, using horses to bring them comfort.
