Our Team

Kate Fraser - Founder

BetaVet had its beginnings in 1989 when herbalist Kate Fraser established the Herbs of Gold brand in Australia. She returned to New Zealand in 2002 and established BetaVet in 2009. From humble beginnings, BetaVet now manufactures a stable of 60 products. 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.

Courtney Fraser - Sales Representative

Courtney was fortunate to have grown up with horses. Living on a farm, she spent many days in the saddle mustering stock, attending pony club and riding at every chance she had. After finishing school, Courtney moved to the Victorian Equestrian Centre where she began training as an equestrian coach, and pursued her passion for eventing. Courtney’s passion for eventing gave her many opportunities. In 2012, she was offered a job riding in Germany for 3 months – an experience of a lifetime. Courtney has been lucky enough to ride at some of the premier eventing tracks in Australia, training under the guidance of some of Australia's best. She continues to event and produce horses from breeding stage through to 4****. “With the help of BetaVet products, I know my horses are in the best condition possible. It gives me great satisfaction to see other competitors enjoying the benefits of the BetaVet range, and I enjoy helping riders work out a supplement plan, tailored to their individual horses needs throughout the eventing season”.

Natalie Waters - Marketing& Sales Manager Australia

I have been fortunate to have had horses from a very young age and it is a passion that has continued to develop over the course of my life. My love of horses has taken me from pleasure riding and Pony Club to overseas as a working student for several professional barns in the United States and Canada. Returning to Australia in my mid twenties I studied Equine Management with Melbourne University, taught Horse Husbandry for Victoria University and ran my own business teaching Children’s horse riding lessons. Being part of a dedicated and knowledgable team and to be able to share my enthusiasm for their products is a dream come true. I look forward to welcoming other riders and their beautiful horses on their Betavet journey.
