New Vocations Seeking Summer Intern

New Vocations is accepting resumes for the third annual Olivia M. Saylor Internship. The internship was established in 2011 to allow college students the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in the Thoroughbred aftercare industry by working for New Vocations Racehorse Adoption. Thoroughbred owner Paul Saylor helped establish the internship in honor of his late daughter Olivia M. Saylor.

"Olivia was very concerned about the quality of life of horses after their racing careers," said Saylor. "She would really be pleased with the success of New Vocations' adoption program and the follow up information provided to those who contribute horses and financial support to New Vocations."

New Vocations program director Anna Ford said, "We are grateful for Paul's ongoing support of our efforts. The internship provides a wonderful learning experience for the students as they work directly with our program to rehabilitate, retrain, and rehome retired racehorses. It is also a huge help to New Vocations by allowing us to add an additional skilled individual to our hardworking team."

The Olivia M. Saylor Internship is a five-month paid position at the New Vocations Lexington, Ky., facility. The individual must be local, have extensive horse experience, as well as good communication and computer skills. Interested individuals can e-mail the Kentucky facility manager Melissa King at
