I met Kirsty, 11 years ago, when I moved into the property next door to her at Goulburn. As time went by I learned that she is an amazing woman. Kirsty’s love for horses stems back to the age of 8. Starting with pony club every weekend and then eventually leading to State competition in jumping.
As Kirsty grew, the love for horses and the science behind these magnificent creatures grew. She acquired an ASSOC Diploma in applied science (horse husbandry and management) then a B.APP Science (equine). With her skills she acquired experience by working around stud farms such as New Haven in the Hunter Valley and Kyle Ranch in Texas USA. Mostly undertaking stud and yearling work. While in Texas, Kirsty was taught to Artificially Inseminate broodmares. This opened another door to acquiring an additional knowledge. When she returned from the USA, Kirsty decided to study for her Certificate.
