About Us
Our Coaches
We pride ourselves in having qualified and experienced coaches to bring the best out of your riding experience. We are coaches because of the kids and the passion we have for the sport itself. There is no other feeling quite like helping young riders further develop their riding skills and discipline with a foundation of respect for others.

Jo-Jo is the founder of 'Jo-Jo's Riding Centre' as well as the head coach (BHAI, SANAIC). She also has her provincial colours for eventing. Jo-Jo also has her First Aid certificate.

Sonja is the assistant coach and has worked extensively overseas with horses, from England, America, Australia and Israel, covering a range of disciplines including Dressage, Eventing, Polo and even Western Riding. Sonja is also the vaulting coach. (BHSAI and CHA level 2)

Claire has been riding since she was just 6 years old. She did her instructors qualifications in England where she worked for 10 years. Claire is a B.H.S.II instructor and has her first aid certification. She even has experience training camels!
