Our Facility

We are very excited to announce the near completion of the new home of Georgian Bay Equine, outside of Clarksburg, Ontario!

Giles and Katrina Ardiel, of Akhal Valley Farms, have generously allowed us to construct our clinic facility alongside their newly expanded horse stable.

The new facility will allow us to operate our own dedicated Equine Clinic, which will include a heated examination area with stocks, hospitalization for patients, office space, lab and pharmacy. We will be able to expand the scope of what we currently offer in the ambulatory /on-farm setting, as well as the convenience of haul-in outpatient services when desired. We anticipate the opening in Winter 2017.

About

Dr. Neundorf, Dr. Hill and Dr. Gallagher

Georgian Bay Equine has been taking care of horses in the Grey, Bruce and Simcoe region since 2015. Dr. Angie Hill started the practice after purchasing the equine portion of Blue Mountain Veterinary Services. In the spring of 2017, Dr. Mark Gallagher joined his own solo equine practice, “Gallagher Equine Services” with GBE. Dr. Richelle Neundorf joined the team shortly thereafter, creating the area’s largest, dedicated equine practice.
Georgian Bay Equine’s goal is to provide our area’s horses with progressive, exceptional veterinary care. Our team approach to care allows us to offer clients a wider range of services in a timely manner, across our call area.

Dr Angie Hill

Dr. Hill grew up in Eastern Ontario and is a 2006 graduate of the Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph. After graduating, she completed a one-year internship in Equine Medicine and Surgery at Glenwood Veterinary Clinic in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. During her time in the mountains, Dr. Hill met her husband Matt. She practiced equine medicine at Moore Equine Center in Calgary, AB and in Colorado, before returning to Ontario in 2011. Dr. Hill worked at Blue Mountain Veterinary Services, developing the new equine part of the practice, until purchasing it in 2015.

Dr. Hill’s professional interests include lameness and sports medicine, dentistry and practice management. Outside of work, she can be found spending time with her family, which includes keeping up with her son Nathan, husband Matt and the household pets. She enjoys riding her mare Bella, hiking with her dog Max and most other outdoor adventures. Dr. Hill is thrilled to realize her dream of creating a dedicated equine practice within Grey County!

Dr Mark B Gallagher

Dr. Gallagher brings 36 year our experience to the practice. Growing up, his time was split between Bath, Ohio and McGregor Bay, ON. He is a 1981 graduate of the College of Veterinary Medicine at Ohio State University. After graduation, Dr. Gallagher practiced in rural Vermont, until relocating to Ontario in 2006, to start Nottawasaga Veterinary Services with his wife, Dr. Linda Squires. In 2011, he started Gallagher Equine Services, a solo equine practice based out of his home farm.

Dr. Gallagher is certified in both Veterinary Chiropractic and Acupuncture. His professional interests include reproduction, emergency medicine and complementary medicine. Outside of work, he enjoys spending time with his wife on their 100 acre organic vegetable and poultry farm and time away at his cottage in McGregor Bay. He has two grown children, Anna practices veterinary medicine in Vermont and Clyde practices law in Florida.

Dr Richelle Neundorf

Dr. Richelle Neundorf grew up in Barrie, Ontario. She started riding at the age of 11 and as most girls do became horse crazy. She showed in lower level hunter/jumpers and then tried reining during university. Prior to vet school she completed a Masters degree at the University of Guelph. Her masters degree investigated the prevalence and degree of osteoarthritis in thoroughbred racehorses. This research highlights the horse as an elite athlete and spark her interest in sports medicine and lameness work. She graduated from Ontario Veterinary College in 2014 . After graduation she practiced mixed animal in rural northern Alberta. Wanting to refine her clinical skills, she pursued a private practice equine internship in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. Now she has come full circle and is exited to be back home and a part of an excellent equine team. She looks forward to developing a strong relationship with you and your horse!

Stacey Irwin, RVT

Stacey joined the Georgian Bay Equine team in May 2017 following the merger with Gallagher Equine, as an experienced equine registered veterinary technician, and had been working with Dr. Gallagher for several years. Growing up in the Barrie area, Stacey hasn’t always worked in the animal world. As a mother of two horse crazy girls, the whole family became involved in their passion. After 11 years I of work in the auto industry, she had the opportunity to pursue what had also become her passion and returned to school.

She graduated from the Veterinary Technician Program at Georgian College in 2012 with honours and became a RVT later that same year. After graduation, she worked in small animal practice and began part-time work with Dr. Gallagher. She joined Gallagher Equine Services full time in 2013 and has been working exclusively on horses since that time.

She currently cares for her daughters’ 3 horses and a donkey, while they are living and working in Alberta. She enjoys camping and travelling with her husband and someday might even take up riding herself!
