Equine Science and Management Internship Program




The UK equine and management degree curriculum focuses on animal biology, chemistry, business and marketing. As part of the industry-supported curriculum, a three-credit, graded internship is required to graduate. The equine internship program at UK is as broad and diverse as the horse industry itself. Interns are place in and around Lexington, the horse capital of the world, as well as across the country. They work on farms, in offices, and everything horse related in between. Students have interned at vet clinics, with horse trainers, and in equine marketing positions. They have worked with numerous breeds and disciplines and our internship program is only just beginning.
