Old Collegians

Maddi Meares (2012-2014)


After leaving the College I sent my resume out to many different horse places in Perth and I was lucky enough to get an interview with Yarradale Stud. My Certificate II in Equine and Agriculture got me an interview and I was lucky enough to commence employment in the December as a Stud hand.

Since I started at the stud I have been involved in yearling preparation for the Magic Millions Sales at Belmont. We took 38 yearlings to the sale with one of our colts topping the sales. All the bites and kicks were worth the experience!  I’m now looking forward to the foaling season to start.

I am planning on staying on for the full year to learn more about the racing and breeding industry, whilst saving some money before going to university in 2015.  I’m not sure at this stage if it will be Curtin University  or Muresk Institute.
