Given the uncertainties surrounding COVID-19, we have decided to suspend the Maryland Thoroughbred Career Program for 2020. This decision was not made lightly and we will look forward to resuming the program in 2021. In the meantime, interested candidates are welcome to reach out to Jordyn Egan - jordyn@marylandthoroughbred.
Launched in 2017, the Maryland Thoroughbred Career Program is an educational program presented by the Maryland Horse Industry Foundation (MHIF) that aims to:
- Increase awareness of the diverse career options in the Thoroughbred industry
- Give participants access to leaders of the Maryland Thoroughbred community
- Highlight various paths for pursuing a career in the Thoroughbred industry
- Address a critical need to attract and retain experienced and devoted employees
Over the course of a week, participants are encouraged to fully engage in the Maryland Thoroughbred industry and explore a multitude of career options. Graduates of the MTCP are eligible to apply for Career Development Funds, one-time funding that can be used to further career pursuits within two years after the program ends.
