Thoroughbred Breeding Internships

Thoroughbred Breeding Internships

Postby Summer Bird » Mon Jan 27, 2014 3:13 pm

Hi I have to do an internship to graduate from college and I would like to work at a thoroughbred farm. I have KEMI and Darley Flying Start but I would like to know which farms do internships that aren't in Kentucky as well. I don't mind where even if it's out of the country. I am going to contact some farms myself too and ask.

In order to apply to Darley Flying Start you have to already have to have a uni degree, so unless you are working on a second degree I don't think that would be an option.

Claiborne do one :)

Also may be worth trying in Australia? Several people on my course are going there next year for an internship and it's good pay as well. I could ask them which stud it is, if you're interested?

Yea I looked it up and saw that so I knew I had no chance for Darley but Le Beau Bai could you tell me the name of the stud farm? I would greatly appreciate it and thank you!

Make sure to get some proper hands-on work experience as well if this is the area you want to go into - the word 'internship' puts off many stud masters!

I've done a few of the things above, so drop me a PM if you want any advice.

I'm in the breeding program at my school so I am getting a nice hands on experience although it is with Standardbreds, which is a little different. Everything is hands on here and we have our own stallions as well. I'll take any advice so a pm would be appreciated thank you!
