Description

The Equine Care and Rehabilitation Internship at Days End Farm Horse Rescue (DEFHR) gives participants a unique opportunity to work with neglected and abused horses seized by animal protection authorities. Interns in this program can expect to gain significant equine husbandry experience, learn how to recognize equine cruelty and neglect, as well as receive training in basic rehabilitation and horse psychology. This program is tailored to those seeking careers in equine management, equine veterinary services, equine rescue and rehabilitation, or equine advocacy. Riding and training is not the primary focus of this internship, although opportunities to ride may be available.
