Christine Meunier considers herself introduced to the wonderful world of horses at the late age of 13 when her parents agreed to lease a horse for her.  She started experiencing horses via books from a young age and continues to do so, but recognises that horses cannot be learnt solely from books.

She has been studying horses from age 16, starting with the Certificate II in Horse Studies and finished the Bachelor of Equine Science in 2015.

She has worked at numerous Thoroughbred Studs in North East Victoria before following her passion for breeding horses over to the Irish National Stud in Kildare.

She then gained experience in a couple of Melbourne based horse riding schools, instructing at a basicv level before heading off overseas again, this time to South Africa to spend hours in the saddle of endurance and trail horses on the Wild Coast.

Particularly passionate about the world of breeding horses, she taught equine studies focused on breeding, at TAFE.  Now she focuses her energy on writing horse books, horse educational resources and Equus Education, which focuses on horse careers around the world.

She lives in north east Victoria, Australia with her husband and two young children.

  1. Hey Christine!
    Remember me? I’m the one with Pie An Old Brown Horse. Turns out he hd been accidently printed without his final edit. I had no idea until you and someone else told me. Thank you for that, it was quite helpful. You will be happy to know he was pulled from production and was re-edited. After 168 edits, he is ready to go the right way this time. MCV Egan thought we might want to connect and cross promote. What do you think? Would you like me to help you promote your book? Kandy

  2. Hello Christine, your Mum told me about your book – what a huge task with so many pages! I have just had a book printed titled ‘Thank God I Had a Stroke’ and the challenge for me was that the stroke has left me with ‘Alexia without Agraphia’ which means I cannot read BUT I can write. My husband had to read each page to me as I wrote it – can you imagine just how difficult this was? But I managed it and it is now in print. I will look forward to reading your book as I grew up with horses and rented or owned one for many years. I have actually written a children’s book on the life of ‘Sri’ (my horse)and like you, taking many of the experiences that I had as a child growing up in the bush with horses. I have not tried to have it published – perhaps I should think of it!

    Good luck
    Barb
