Joanna (Jo) Brooks

Jo’s role sees her providing sessions of therapeutic riding for children and adults with a variety of additional needs. Her extensive qualifications include a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Psychology, TEFL teacher and EAL and Therapeutic Coaching Facilitator certificates, all of which she draws from to create engaging and meaningful sessions. She also manages the workload of our hard-working equines, ensuring they all have plentiful time for rest in between their sessions. Jo’s favourite parts of her role are getting to team up with a horse and spend one-on-one time with them and some really special kids, and knowing she’s making a big difference in their week. Outside of Festina Lente she loves spending time with her own kids, especially watching movies together, and loves anything to do with Spain – language, food, culture!
