Maggie Main started with Sharpe Farm Supplies in 1996 selling horse feed to horse farms in the area. Recognizing the lack of information in the Equine Nutrition field, she took the Equine Nutrition course through the Equine Research Center in Guelph and wrote her exam in 1998. In 2002-3 she successfully completed the comprehensive, state of the art Equi-Tech program through Purina and is now a Certified Equine Consultant. She is continuing to increase her knowledge of the nutrition and feed industry as well as paddock and pasture management.
Deb has been active in the horse community since 1985, having helped her uncle race thoroughbreds on the racetracks of California. She graduated from the University of Guelph with a degree in Animal Science, with a minor in Animal Nutrition in 1991. She worked for 8 years at the former Equine Research Centre assisting in research areas such as exercise physiology, nutrition, reproduction, nuclear medicine and horse management. While working at the ERC, she continued research and attained a Masters of Science in Reproductive Physiology from U of G. She also created a distance learning program which had 5 courses in Reproduction, Nutrition, Exercise Physiology, Equine Management and Facilities and Design for horse enthusiasts to learn horse management from home. The course had over 650 students take the different courses available. After graduating, she started Iron Horse Equine, a mobile reproduction unit which collected and processed stallion semen and held many workshops and seminars in a variety of areas pertaining to the horse industry.
Ken has been active in the equine business for years and has a real passion for being in the field, especially around the race horses. He has owned his own feed business in Freelton with his wife Cindy; however he recently sold the business to Sharpes so he can devote more time in the field.
