One of Australia’s leading event riders
Kevin has developed numerous horses to the top level of our sport and is a very accomplished coach.
He has been listed on Australia’s Elite Eventing Squad with a number of horses and was shortlisted for the 2000 Sydney Olympics on the mare Taj Mirage, on whom he also finished third and fifth at Adelaide CCI****. In 2008 Kevin travelled to Deauville, France to compete at the Eventing World Cup final where he finished tenth on Game Play.
In 2012 he decided to make the move to the UK to follow his ambitions. Since being here he has finished fifth at Luhmuhlen CCI**** on Clifton Pinot, tenth at Pau CCI**** with Fernhill Quality Street and represented Australia at numerous Nations Cup events. He has also built up a yard of 30 exciting eventing horses.
Kevin’s goal is to represent his country at the Olympics and World Equestrian Games, as well as competing in all the 4**** events around the world. His up-and-coming horse for the future is the lovely Brookfield Innocent, who recently competed successfully at the Blenheim CIC*** eight/nine-year-old event in 2017.
Kevin has been a Pure Feed brand ambassador for three years
“The decision to move to Pure Feed was a very straight forward one for me once I learnt exactly how it works. I was lucky enough to meet founders John Calder and Lou Talintyre and their team in 2014. Once they had explained the science behind their feed it was an obvious choice for me and my team.”
“The feed is streets ahead of anything I have previously fed or come across. The ‘complete feed’ theory is the thing that appealed to me the most. The fact that you can have a complete feed in a scoop is something that is perfect for our yard and our horses.”
“Running a yard of 30 horses, all with different appetites, temperaments and weights means that feed time was a very detailed process, which meant lots of room for error for our staff. Since using Pure Feed this is no longer the case. It is so simple and that is what my staff and I love about it. You don’t have to feed a variety of feeds to each horse to make sure it maintains its weight and is getting everything it needs.”
“Pure Feed is palatable enough that even our fussy eaters like it. We are not having to be creative to try and get them to eat their feed anymore. This to me is very important. It means I can happily know that our horses are getting everything they need to be athletes and are enjoying it to!”
“Not only is the feed fantastic, but the whole team at Pure Feed are completely professional. They can answer any questions we may have and go through specific dietary plans for all our horses, taking the guess work out for us. This is not a service which you get with most feed companies.”
“Pure Feed really is one of the key ingredients in keeping our yard running as efficiently as it does, and in keeping our horses in the best condition they have ever been.”
