We have a super special guest! A certified fitness instructor, personal trainer and yoga instructor.
The amazing Kelly Montford is also a daughter, sister and most importantly a mother, to three humans and two four-leggers.
She was never athletic in her school years and was always more interested in curling up in the corner with a book or being outside.
About 18 yrs ago, one of her children began developing health issues and Kelly needed an outlet. She began running and lifting weights and noticed how my coping capacity increased. As their lives returned to some sort of normalcy, she continued on with her fitness activities. She had more clarity, more energy. Her clothes fit better and she was happy. She knew this couldn’t just be her, this had to be something that could help others.
At the same time all of this was happening, She knew she needed a career change.
Working at a desk inside was becoming less desirable and fulfilling.
She made the leap, in her mid-thirties, and went back to post-secondary education - earned her personal training certificate. From there, she has earned her 200-hour yoga training, then her 300 hour as well as group fitness and TRX training.
She was invited shortly thereafter to work with children in her local school district who, for whatever reason, weren’t able to partake in the mainstream physical education program.
Now, alongside working with all ages and abilities on multiple levels, she has recently become part owner/operator of Strathmore’s Transcend Yoga & Wellness.
Have you ever wondered;
“What’s right in how I run a horse biz?”
“These are crazy times, is it even possible?”
“What are some things I can do to keep moving forward?”
We have a super special guest! The lovely Jane Hemingway-Mohr who is not only just an all around amazing business and horse woman, but she is also our Instructor in Australia!
Jane is an expert in authentic leadership development, combining her lifelong passion for, understanding of and extensive training in everything horses with her long history of corporate experience both in Australia and internationally.
Over the past several years, Jane has immersed herself in the world of equine assisted learning and all that she can learn from horses about herself and others.
Jane believes that horses are the ultimate life coaches, as they provide honest, immediate and unbiased responses to individual and group energy, intention, actions and body language. She says, “Quite simply, horses help people become better humans.”
After establishing her own performance horse boarding, training and coaching facility in 2011, Jane soon realized that there was much more to being with her equine partners than riding and ribbons. Keen to share this special insight with a broader range of people, she qualified as an Equine Assisted Learning facilitator with Equine Connection Inc – The Academy of Equine Assisted Learning, and established Leading Edge Life Skills in March 2015. In January 2017, Jane undertook further training to become the only certified instructor in the southern hemisphere for Equine Connection.
Together Jane and her team – both human and horse – have hosted personal and professional development programs and workshops for literally hundreds of individuals.
Jane is an accredited riding coach and competitive show jumping rider. She is married, has four children, three dogs, three cats and too many horses! (As if that were a real thing! Ha!)

Strong Marketing Communication skills, especially in writing and brand development

Passionate about animals and being everyone’s mum – our home is always full of people and animals - no one goes hungry or feels lonely
It’s our turn to be interviewed! 🤩Kent Boehm from @NineBusinessGroup will be joining us this morning to talk about Equine Connection and how we got to be where we are today! Tune in to hear all about how Equine Connection grew to be in the international 🌎organization it is today!
That’s right! We learned so much from Doug Walsh over the past few weeks and now we get to chat with the amazing Warwick Schiller to add even more to our “What’s Right?” toolbox!
Warwick looks at horsemanship as seeing things from the horse's eye’s, or from the horse's point of view. As humans, we tend to think we are smarter and know better, but time after time, the horse shows us, if we listen they will teach us. A horse knows better than a human about what a horse thinks. If we get the wrong answer, we need to change in order to get a different answer.🐴
The concept of making the right easy and wrong thing hard is said a lot, and sounds like a nice catchphrase for smart natural horse people, however, really understanding it and being able to apply is very different than just saying it.
See things as a horse, understand a horse so you can do this, study the horse so you can understand them and treat a horse like a horse, not what we want a horse to be, not what we are told a horse should be, not what we see a horse as in movies and not what we wished our horse would be.
A horse is only a horse and that is all they know how to be. 🐴❤️
Ahh… This gives us chills! Are you ready to open your mind and become the partner your horse has been waiting for? 😍
Join us to tune in and learn even MORE about what is right with horses!
The Third live with the amazing @DougWalsh from Dark Horse Natural Horsemanship will be about the gift of giving troubled horses a second chance.
🐴Doug will tell us about two horses with significant behavioural misunderstandings that with horsemanship training were be able to embrace a new successful and happy life.
