Reproduction Assistants




kayleen--gympie-futurityKayleen has been involved with horses all her life - starting riding at age 3 and competing at her first Brisbane Royal riding pony hacks when she was 8. She won many Hack of the Year prizes and then began competing in Australian Stock Horse Futurities, winning the South Queensland Management Committee Hi-Point 2 year old series at her first attempt in 2001.

Since then Kayleen has won this event seven times, as well as many Championship Australian Stock Events events at National level.

Kayleen moved to Pittsworth in 2007 and married Brian Sutton in 2008 and they continue to breed, show and sell their Australian Stock Horses. Kayleen is shown with the trophy rug for winning the 2yo Owner/Rider Futurity with her home-bred "Sheady Ultimate Destiny" at Gympie 2012

Kayleen commenced work at Equivet in 2010 where she works as a reproductive assitant - a job that she finds "inspirational".





Samme – grew up as a horse-mad teenager in Brisbane.

After completing an Equine Science Diploma at Gatton Samme gained employment in a racing stable. Because of her keen interest in breeding Samme began doing voluntary work experience at our breeding centre after she had finished her daily stable duties. For a brief period Samme worked as a volunteer before commencing full time employment at Equivet in 2009. She has since become a valuable member of the reproduction team.

Samme is now fulfilling her life-long dream of studying to become a veterinarian. In February 2014 Samme commenced veterinary studies at Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga New South Wales. Samme and her wolfhound cross Zahara will come back to Southbrook during the the summer holidays to resume their role at the breeding centre - Samme helping Robyn at the crush and Zahara sharing playtime with Rocky – the resident Equivet staffy.

Samme is pictured making friends with a percheron foal "Krystal" at Equivet while her Mum is bring re-bred.





Kat came to Equivet after meeting Max & Robyn while working at a warmblood stud in France during the northern hemisphere breeding season.
