Dr. Noelle Baxter
Bachelor of Veterinary Science
Advanced Certificate in Equine Medicine (Stud)
Noelle grew up on a dairy farm in Northern Ireland, where she first developed an interest in the thoroughbred breeding industry. She graduated from the University of Liverpool in 1998 and after a solid foundation of 7 years in mixed and large animal practice in South Wales, she moved towards dedicated equine practice, and in particular equine reproduction.
From 2005 - 2015 Noelle completed back-to-back stud seasons in the UK and Australia and gained her Certificate in Equine Medicine (Stud Medicine) in 2009.
Noelle enjoys all aspects of equine practice and stud medicine with a special interest in assisted reproductive techniques and reproductive management of stallions. She has dedicated her last 13 years to perfecting her skills in artificial insemination and embryo transfer working with sport horses, quarter horses and polo ponies.
Since 2015 she has been working in England at a large equine hospital where she has enjoyed working in general equine practice out of the stud season. Noelle's extensive equine experience and in particular her vast reproductive knowledge makes her an integral part in any breeding operation.
Noelle now resides in the Southern Highlands, NSW with her husband, David and sons George, 4 and Charlie,1. Her interests include riding, triathlons, cycling and walking their terriers.
