About Us

Our History

Equine 2000 was founded over 20 years ago by Russell Dye.

Russell grew up in the harness racing industry, and he started Equine 2000 when it became obvious that NZ trainers didn’t have access to the same quality supplements that international trainers were using. 

Russell started out using Equine 2000 supplements himself – until his contacts got wind of it and also starting buying the supplements off him. The business was borne. 

Russell’s goal was simple, to offer world leading quality supplements, and to do so with complete traceability and safety.

I’m pleased to continue what Russell started over 20 years ago, and I’m excited about helping kiwi trainers and breeders get the best out of their horses.

About Us

Simone McConnell from Equine 2000Hi, I'm Simone, owner of Equine 2000.

I’ve always loved horses, and I began riding when I was just 4 years old. 

I started at my local pony club in Taneatua, then moved on to representative riding for Whakatane and the Bay of Plenty, before being selected in the NZ Young Rider squad.

Fast forward a few years and I’m still riding, I have 3 kids who ride too – with my passion for horses now being channelled into Equine 2000.

I’m also a qualified personal trainer, so I know how the human body works, and it’s no secret that the principles are similar for animals. We don’t expect our elite sportspeople to compete without high quality supplements, and it’s the same for our horses. In my view, supplements give our horses the opportunity to perform at their absolute best, and that’s why I became involved in Equine 2000.
