Adolfo Arenas Experience at the Kentucky Equine Management Internship

Adolfo riding a ThoroughbredAdolfo holding a yearling ThoroughbredKentucky Equine Management Internship (KEMI) is a 22-week internship with a spring and fall session. I did the fall session which is the yearling sales-prep/breaking and training. This is a very hands-on internship allowing one to get a lot of handling experience. During my time in Kentucky I learned how to prepare yearlings for the sales including everything feeding the proper diet, proper grooming, and daily exercise routines. After the sales the breaking of yearlings begins. This is great for those who enjoy riding or would like to learn how to ride thoroughbreds. I rode in a galloping saddle for the first time ever while on my internship. I came to this program with no thoroughbred background, but one is able to pick up quickly because of all the exposure one gets to the industry. I chose to apply for this internship because I was unsure of what I could do with an Animal Science degree. After this program I saw there is a plethora of careers to chose from that allow me to do what I enjoy, which is being around horses. I would highly recommend this to others with the same interest
