As Monty's assistant, Jo was to ride two starters (who had never been saddled or ridden before) and do a Join-Up in front of a big audience in the world's most prestigious dressage hall.

Jo organised an event near her hometown in South Wales. Monty, Jo and Barry Thomas demonstrated violence-free training methods with an unstarted rescue pony, a very spooky mare and two tricky loaders, as well as showing off superstars Motto and Guitar Man!

Veterans Clinic June 2017

As part of an ongoing effort to help those affected by post-traumatic stress, Monty conducts several 'Horse Sense and Healing' clinics throughout the year in the US and also the UK. Horses can have remarkable healing qualities and it is a huge privilege to be part of a team that helps transform veterans lives.

Since spending 6 months in Africa in her mid-20's, Jo had always longed to return to this amazing country. With two demonstrations in Johannesburg and another two in The Cape, Monty's first public appearances in South Africa were very well received, with at least one standing ovation per night, and a special award from the South African Equestrian Federation.
