Kate Fraser
Managing Director

BetaVet’s founder, Kate Fraser, wants to raise the bar in the competitive sport horse industry providing healthy, plant-based products designed for equine health. Her vision is global as well — she is driving change in New Zealand’s equine supplement market by expanding the international market for unique, effective and extensively researched herbal therapeutics

Kate Fraser founded the iconic herbal brand Herbs of Gold in Australia, and went on to build a multimillion-dollar business. Her drive for innovation and her in depth knowledge of the benefits of herbal medicine now drives the BetaVet business in natural equine health.

Kate says “Horses are athletes. Like human athletes, the same principles apply. Our products are not performance enhancers, they are designed to support horse health through times of stress and the rigours of competition they endure week-in, week-out.

BetaVet provides the ultimate complementary equine healthcare to maximise potential in the horses and give peace of mind for owners.

Paul Mitchell
Technical Director

One of the core principles I’ve learnt is the importance of the quality in the medicines we use for our patients. I strive to maintain ‘Quality and Efficacy’ as a cornerstone philosophy.

My background in organic horticulture has kept alive an avid interest in all things organic and chemical free. I am in a great position to highlight the importance of quality, not only when it comes to the medicines we put into our bodies, but also the quality of what we use to support and treat the animals.

My contribution to BetaVet is to maintain and elevate the already high standards of products and support through my thirty years experience as a practitioner and business owner in the natural health industry.

Kylie Unsworth
National Sales and Brand Manager.

I am absolutely over the moon to be part of the BetaVet team as National Sales and Brand Manager. I have been involved with horses for most of my life and went through the ranks at Pony Club, hunted, worked in the racing industry abroad and competed in the Show Jumping arena.

In more recent times, my husband (Ike Unsworth) and I managed Mount View Sport Horses. We bred, raised and produced jumping horses right up to World Cup level for a number of years. I previously worked at Farmlands in Tauranga, where I received some amazing feedback from customers about the products in the BetaVet range so it was only natural that I wanted be part of the “Betavet Journey!”

Ashley Harrington
South Island Sales Representative

I am absolutely delighted to be a part of the BetaVet team as the South Island Sales Rep. I have been involved with horses all my life, with my father Russell McKay being a horse trainer.

I started in the game as an apprentice jockey, now I’m training thoroughbreds alongside my father at Riccarton park.

I am lucky enough to be a part of both racing codes with my husband Jack Harrington training harness horses. We both use the BetaVet products on our racing teams, and we are able to see the huge benefits for ourselves. I am proud to say both our teams are looking and feeling great.

I feel very blessed to be able to do two things…I absolutely love training and racing horses and being a part of products that help with horses overall wellbeing and performing at their very best is the icing on the cake!
