Kentucky Equine Management Internship

The Kentucky Equine Management Internship (KEMI) program is dedicated to improving the opportunities for college students wishing to pursue an interest in the field of equine management. KEMI offers a comprehensive educational experience for students enrolled for academic credit through a sponsoring college or university, or for recent graduates of such institutions. Through the internship, students integrate academic studies with practical experience, leadership and responsibility as a contributing participant on a Central Kentucky horse farm. Aside from farm commitments, students are introduced into a network of equine professionals representing multifaceted careers in the equine profession. During the first week of the course, students participate in Orientation activities as a group. After the first week, students are employed full-time by participating farms where they become familiar with the day-to-day management of horses on commercial thoroughbred farms. On area farms, a typical full-time work week is 48 hours per week with one day off. In most cases, students work hands-on with horses, however some farms may also assign responsibilities associated with record keeping, veterinary care or farm maintenance. At least one night each week students meet as a group for a classroom lecture, laboratory exercise or demonstration.

It's a very busy time in the Bluegrass for any equine enthusiast: the Keeneland race meet is still running; the Kentucky Derby is rapidly approaching and the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event will be here soon! We LOVE to watch the Thoroughbreds run, but we love to celebrate them in second careers, too! These animals have so much to give even once they have retired from racing. Here's a cheat sheet on the Thoroughbreds that will be competing at "The Best Weekend All Year!"
