Kristie Morris

Dip Ag, Cert III EqN

Kristie Morris was smitten by horses early but didn’t start riding until 12 yrs old. She bought her first horse when 15 and as a young adult she started a long, enjoyable and productive relationship with the Walker family of Marena Stud. This has given Kristie both great pleasure and an increased knowledge of all aspects of a working stud, riding academy and high level competition. She worked for the Walker family for 18yrs until their retirement and stud sale. While working on the stud, Kristie met Dr Jennifer Stewart who she would later work with in veterinary clinical nutrition for 8yrs.

A qualified equine vet nurse, Kristie also completed a Diploma of agriculture, majoring in animal nutrition through the University of New England, NSW. Kristie shares Dr Olivia’s love of veterinary science, education and personal growth which led a natural progression to working together today. Her passion for veterinarians’ wellbeing and the industry is a basis for all she is involved in, and she enjoys attending equine vet conferences and seminars wherever possible.

Kristie and her family run a small farm on the mid coast NSW where they have just started breeding Belted Galloway cattle, Suffolk sheep and a hefty vegetable garden!
