Holistic Equitation Profiles

The Team at Holistic Equitation


Holistic Equitation

Jo has been involved with horses since the tender age of ten when all her dreams came true and she was given her first horse. After leaving school Jo ran a successful graphic design and marketing business whilst pursuing her love of horses, breeding and healing. Jo has experienced extensive trauma throughout her life and it is through her own dark night of the soul that she is able to now bring wisdom and insight to those on the healing journey. 

Jo has studied many modalities and spent decades learning from some of the best horseman/women in the world to develop her own style of healing and being with horses. Jo brings a unique gift of art, intuition and analytical mindset to the group. Jo’s primary gift is communicating a message. Jo is very multi-dimensional and reads energy fields of animals and humans and is a prolific dreamer, psychic and timeline traveller. Jo is an advanced energy healer which is something she volunteers to those in need. Jo has been an educational speaker and teacher at many conferences including the Cosmic Consciousness Conference. She is a mother, a wife and values all her relationships. She spent many years as an animal and wildlife rescuer and has been a prolific music and content creator developing many programs, writing books, articles, workshops and teaching tools to help make the world a better place for all sentient life.

Jo is a Qualified Equine Therapist, Graphic Designer, Neurographica Art therapy Specialist, Mindfulness Instructor, Sound Healer and EFT practitioner.
