Meet The BSJA Jersey Committee

The Team Behind The Scenes

It takes an awful lot of effort to run an organise an association like the BSJA Jersey.  We are lucky enough to have a great team working behind the scenes to make sure that everything runs as it should and that you, our members, get to enjoy the benefits of a well managed organisation.

She is a BS UK level 2 Course Designer and when she’s not building for our local competitions, you will find her competing her own horse – Cor De Caretino aka “Tino” at events.  Jo also likes to take her horse to compete in the UK when she is able to do so.
