Alexis Hudson ’16 will conduct her summer internship at Kentucky Horse Park, one of the largest and best equine competition facilities in the world.
“It’s huge,” she said. “Kentucky Horse Park is more than 1,000 acres, an equine theme park and a working horse barn—one of the only facilities of its kind.”
This summer, Hudson will take care of grooming in the park’s three barns: the Hall of Champions Barn, Horses of the World Barn and Big Barn.
“I’m really excited about the Big Barn and working with draft horses, which are a bigger breed of horse than I work with at Stephens,” she said.
During her internship, Hudson will also help prepare tours, presentations and horse shows.
Hudson applied for the internship at the suggestion of barn manager Sharon Marohl. After sending a cover letter and resume, the volunteer coordinator contacted her and invited her to the May 12 orientation.
Hudson transferred to Stephens from the University of Missouri to get a more equine-focused education. She praised Stephens’ program for preparing her for the internship.
“Stephens has done a great job of preparing us for the real world,” she said. “I’m more excited than anything. I’m ready to put my skills to the test in the equine industry.”
