Dr Melanie Quick at Equitana

What are you thankful for?

This week, many people around the globe celebrated a tradition called Thanksgiving. Whilst it is not an Australian tradition, I would much rather take that on than the darkness and origins of Halloween.

We had an amazing time at Equitana in Melbourne and one of the things I am thankful for is Dr Melanie Quick who is an amazing horse woman, vet, chiropractor, farrier, horse trainer and has committed her life to the well being of working with horses, their behaviour issues and their health and well being. I would have to write a chapter about her, but the thing that stood out to me was that she is kind and friendly and just plain nice!

Now I may be wrong, but it seems like we are all getting a bit too self absorbed and would rather be on our phones at the bus stop than saying ‘Hello’ to the old lady sitting next to us…. so that is beautiful. Here is a link for her website. So much to learn from her and her experience!


A couple of years ago, Melanie gave us some recommendations to make our floats safer, recognising the safe design was the most humane way to float a horse and wanting to support and recommend us. We are happy to say her checklist was completed and we love listening to our horse loving clients and improving whenever we can.

If you get a chance check Dr Melanie Quicks site out and treat yourself to some new knowledge and glean from the expertise she has in many areas of equine care. #theproblemhorse
