Melanie Lawrence - Barn Owner/Instructor
Melanie's family bought Macwin Equestrian Centre in 2010 where she acted as the barn supervisor. In September 2012, Melanie took over as the owner/operator of Macwin Equestrian Centre. Melanie works hard to ensure all of the horses receive the best quality of care 24/7.
Melanie is also Macwin's head riding instructor and provides a fun and encouraging learning environment for all of her students. Melanie began riding at an early age and brings many years of experience in the horse industry. Melanie began working with horses as a high school co-op student at Kingsmill Equestrian under her coach Robin Milroy. Melanie then moved on to gain experience as a working student for Garry Roque, Olympic Eventer and she competed successfully as an eventer for 2 years. She is currently working to complete her Diploma in Equine Studies from the University of Guelph.
Melanie is pictured here with her horse, Gladiator's Spirit (Thatcher) with whom she competes in Dressage & Eventing.
Kim Mullenix - Barn Manager
In the fall of 2012, Kim was promoted to the position of Barn Manager and moved on site after three years of working at Macwin. Kim began her career at Macwin as a part-time employee in 2009 and has been a valuable member of the stable's team ever since.
Kim started riding at summer camps at the age of 10 and joined Pony Club when she was 13. Kim brings extensive horse care and handling knowledge to Macwin Equestrian Centre and can often be found around the property lending a helping hand. Her diligent work ethic and attention to detail help to keep all of the farm's daily operations running smoothly.
Kim got her first horse, Ming, when she was 16 and the pair competed successfully at many regional competitions including Pony Club's National Dressage competition in 2011 where they placed 4th overall.
Kim has recently acquired a new equine partner, Spencer (pictured), and together the pair will be working hard over the winter as they look forward to next year's show season.
