The internship program this Summer has worked out well. Of course, we started with a great intern, a key ingredient. But it’s nice to see the progress of a young person and see the skills and confidence develop.
Our ranch only takes enrolled students in an equine program or recent graduates from an equine college or school. We want the students that come here to be people with the desire to develop horse skills that will be used in their career. It is the mentoring everyone in the horse industry owes to the next generation.
We don’t offer lessons in shoveling manure or cleaning stalls, but lots of riding and first hand training with a professional trainer. The results are fabulous. The students grow and learn techniques and skills that we hope will last a lifetime.
Watching this Summer’s intern has been a real joy and we already know she is going to make a superb veterinarian!!!
