OUR TEAM

Deborah Hunter

Deborah Hunter (Debbie) is another key member of the team here at Braecrest Farm.

Debbie is recently retired from a busy 16 year career as a Registered Practical Nurse, and the preceding 10 years in animal health care. Debbie is the proud mother and number one supporter of her daughter Claire. Debbie excels at helping to provide the warm and welcoming atmosphere that Braecrest is known for and when visiting the farm you will always be greeted with a smile and a friendly word and perhaps, when the timing is right, a cup of her delicious homemade soup.

Debbie has been passionate in her love of horses, dogs and all animals since a young girl growing up in England, and still says “Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that I would be so fortunate to live on a horse farm”.  Debbie is widowed after being married to her dearly loved husband Chris for 34 years and together they proudly brought two beautiful children into the world, their son Matthew and daughter Claire.  Sadly Matthew passed away in 2000 at just 19 years of age, after a brief but serious illness.  Together Debbie and Claire share a strong love and respect for each other, and a passion for all life that they carry with them throughout each and every day.
