Jo Massey – Coach

Jo, a Level 1 Riding Coach and volunteer for over 8 years grew up with horses in the UK and spent many years riding her own ponies and exercising horses for the local Master of Foxhounds.   Jo worked in Local Government (Planning and Building Control) both in the UK and Australia before becoming a full time Mum in 2003 and then travelled and lived in Bangkok with her husband (for his work) and son for 7 years.  It was here that Joe first started volunteering at Friends For All Children Orphanage. Jo’s family then moved to Singapore where she spent a year volunteering at RDA. On her return to Perth in January 2013, Jo started volunteering at RDA Carine.  One day a week soon turned into two then three and more….it’s very addictive and rewarding!! After a couple of years she undertook her OTC training.  Jo then spent 3 more years training under Sarah Lamb and is now a Level 1 Riding Coach.

Outside of RDA Jo likes to spend time with her family and her Black Labrador Jet. She loves to spend time in the outdoors and usually loves to travel overseas. Both Jo, her husband and son spend time on Sunday’s and holidays helping out at RDA….it has become a family commitment!!
