The first inaugural Olivia M. Saylor Internship has been established to allow a college student the opportunity to gain hands on experience rehabing, retraining, and rehoming retired racehorses at New Vocations. Prominent horse owner, Paul Saylor, graciously helped establish the internship in honor of his daughter Olivia M. Saylor, who passed away in January. “We are grateful for Paul's ongoing support of our efforts,” said Program Director Anna Ford. “It provides a wonderful learning experience for the student and also gives us another skilled hand.”

The Olivia M. Saylor Internship will take place at the New Vocations Lexington, Kentucky facility this summer. University of Kentucky student Morgan Whitney has been chosen for the internship which spans the summer. Responsibilities include participating in the rehab, retraining, and marketing of the adoption horses, as well as promotion of New Vocations efforts in the Lexington area.
