“ Coaching is about the athlete having fun and developing; and the coach thinking outside the square”

Jo is a previous gold medal winning Paralympian and 3 times Para World Champion. 

Jo actively participates in dressage and para dressage.  She holds a UK BA (Hons) Degree in Equine Studies and is an ESNZ Performance Coach.

I first started my competition life as a show jumper, with some eventing.  Then I was talented spotted by GBR Para Dressage, and so became my career in Para Dressage, leading to becoming a member of the GBR Para Team that won the first Team Gold in Atlanta 1996, where I also won 2 Individual Golds.  I have 3 World Championship Golds, plus numerous awards.  At this time I concurrently trained my own horse to, and competed at Advanced level Dressage.  I have a BA (Hons) Degree in Equine Studies.  Since immigrating to New Zealand, I have competed Nationally and Internationally for NZL, and have taken up coaching on an informal basis.  I specialise in challenges outside of the box.
