The cowboy and the queen who bonded over horses

A California cowboy will sit next to heads of state at Queen Elizabeth’s funeral on Monday.

Monty Roberts’ unique method of training horses impressed the Queen and formed the basis of a friendship spanning decades.

In 2011, she made Monty an honorary member of the Royal Victorian Order, an honor bestowed upon people who have served the Queen or the monarchy in a personal way.
