Jamie Thorne first dealt with horses as a 10 year old when she was given her first pony named “Lollie”. Jamie and Lollie competed in pony club for six years and Lollie was quite the little sporting competitor.
Jamie’s family began breeding thoroughbreds on the south coast which is where Jamie’s passion for horses especially thoroughbreds and the drive to become a vet nurse came from.
Jamie has been a qualified equine vet nurse since 2004 working as the senior vet nurse for 4.5 years at Woodlands Stud (now Darley Denman). During this time Jamie was awarded the Equine Nurses Scholarship from Scone Equine Hospital and worked at Hagyards Equine Medical institute in Lexington, Kentucky USA for 6 months in 2006.
Jamie is very interested in neonatal foal care, breeding and post operative care. Jamie is also interested in photography especially of animals.
Jamie moved to Orange to pursue her role at Central West Equine with her beloved animals, two horses, four dogs, a cat and five birds which keep her very busy.
