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.

Throughout Kentucky and the world, horses are big business, and not just when they're racing: It's imperative that they be kept as healthy and sound as possible. Because of this, some of the most cutting-edge research is being funded by the Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation. Familiar with TJC, but not their research arm? You actually probably are .... Eastern Tent Caterpillars and Mare Reproductive Loss Syndrome ring a bell? What about the protocol for dealing with a horse with EPM or botulism? Horse owners and managers can thank Grayson for their invaluable help in funding research to deal with each of these issues and many more, including laminitis and EHV. Grayson is currently funding 26 projects at 16 universities on three continents. Now that's impressive!
