About Kristina Pazdzior, B.Sc., M.Sc.

Kristina grew up surrounded by animals in a tiny village in Central-Eastern Ontario. Her passion for horses most likely started in utero, and lead to riding lessons, clowning around on her aunt’s horse, and riding anything that would let her. She purchased an off-track chestnut thoroughbred mare in her preteens and the two of them were found in the jumper and eventer rings for many years. Kristina’s genuine curiosity for living things lead her to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Animal Biology from the University of Guelph and later undertaking a Master of Science in Animal Nutrition. At this time, Kristina focused her research on equine nutraceuticals and studies on a wide breadth of animal nutrition courses. Kristina loves to garden, cook, and play weekend warrior riding at her family farm.
