Our one-year internships (starting post-graduation) have primary responsibility for our hospital and clinic patients' care and treatment (including foal-outs and newborn care), and as your skills, confidence, and experience grow, you will handle ambulatory calls for a variety of patient types.
Our practice includes Sports Medicine, featuring advanced sports medicine diagnostics (MRI, nuclear medicine, and video endoscopy) and treatment (surgical, stem cell, shockwave, and IRAP). Our Hospital and Diagnostic facility includes a fully equipped surgical surgical suite with 17-stall barn, multiple treatment rooms, and recovery rooms. We also provide Advanced Reproduction at our state-of-the-art reproduction center, including AI and ET lab, breeding shed and stallion station, 15-stall foal-out facility, and recipient herd.
We enjoy a diverse clientele of American Saddlebred, Morgan, Arabian, and Quarter Horse championship winning show barns, Saddlebred, Thoroughbred, and Standardbred breeding farms -- from the biggest draft horses to the littlest miniature horses, to donkeys, mules and the occasional zebra -- the Equidae family is our family!
Conveniently located between Louisville and Lexington and only 90 minutes to Cincinnati, Shelby County, Kentucky is a great place to live and work.
Our interns are provided with on-site housing, a competitive salary, CE, vehicle, phone, and a great working environment with a supportive technical staff. Kentucky license required.

About Equine Services
For more than 35 years, Equine Services, located in Simpsonville, Kentucky, has been dedicated to the health and care of the horse. We diagnose the problem, provide a solution and apply the treatment. Since its inception in 1979 Equine Services has been known for being multi-faceted in the forefront of technology and innovation in service of the horse and horse industry. Our goal is to constantly and consistently advance equine medical technology, diagnosis and treatment of our patients without forgetting a client orientated common sense practical horsemanship approach. Equine Services is known for “state of the art” hospital facilities, diagnostics and a passionate care of the horse.Equine Services is proud of its many “firsts” and leading roll with advanced techniques. Equine Services was the first Kentucky clinic to offer embryo transplantation in 1979 and performed the first equine inter-species transplant in the world. A Zebra embryo was transplanted to a domestic horse in 1983 thus re-writing many concepts of reproduction. Hysterioscopic uterine evaluation and later laser-video-hysteroscopic evaluation and treatment were implemented. The reproductive exploratory and ...tubal patency technique for evaluation and treatment of equine oviduct disorders was developed at Equine Services.Equine services was one of the first facilities in the country to offer laser surgery. This started with the CO2 laser in 1984, and rapidly progressed to the Nd-YAG and diode transendoscopic technologies. Many laser procedures such as uterine cyst and adhesion ablation, aryepiglottic fold removal, epiglottic entrapment, arytenoidectomy, and sinus laser procedures were pioneered at Equine Services allowing for standing minimally invasive surgery. Always a progressive leader in sports medicine and orthopedic procedures Equine Services was one of the first to employ digital radiography, digital nuclear scintigraphy, extra-corporal shockwave, and the first site for IRAP joint therapy. Stem cell regenerative therapy was a natural consequence from these technologies and Equine Services was one of the first to start using stem cell technologies. Our MRI system was another first being able to routinely and consistently image the equine stifle. Exercise endoscopy of the upper airway without the need of a treadmill was another Kentucky first at Equine Service.Currently, new forms of integrative and oxidation therapies are being added to the progressive and innovative options for the horses benefit at Equine Services.
