Voluntary Support Team


Paintedhorse, Somerset, bid writing, risk assessment, equine therapy

Suzzanna kindly volunteers for paintedhorse and helps with bid writing and risk assessments.

Suzzanna has been professionally working with vulnerable people since 2003 in a number of different roles, but naturally focused her energy on those that need it in most areas of her life since her school days. Suzzanna’s skills are centred around mentoring, challenging others to develop quality to better the outcomes of vulnerable people living in our communities; keeping an individual at the heart of their support service and recognising we all have aspirations buried somewhere.

Jilly BluckJilly has volunteered for animal rescue centres in the past and even met her husband whilst working there. Jilly attends the Friends of Paintedhorse group on Fridays and also volunteers with the horse work on Wed mornings. Collies Annie and Sky are big fans of Jilly if they help her with the hay nets and they get the dog biscuits hidden in her pockets during tea break. Perfect.



Pip is a full time mum and teacher. Pip’s 6 year old daughter also comes along to help us with the horse chores on Wed mornings. Pip’s daughter has been quite fascinated with the free range chickens and the song they sing make after laying eggs.
