The Expert | Mick Malone

Mick Malone says he doesn’t know what his life would have been like without horses in it. After growing up on the Upper North Shore of Sydney, Mick went jackarooing on cattle stations where he developed a love of the horse. From there Mick went to work at Arrowfield, in New South Wales’s Hunter Valley.  Mick began at Kitchwin Hills in 2000 until purchasing his own operation, North in 2023.  

Mick prides himself on teaching his staff how to handle horses safely.
"You learn something new every day that you work with horses."
