Taylor Made Farm, a TPM collaborative employer, the Fletcher Group, and the Equine Workforce Development Initiative, have created a vocational training program in Jessamine County for individuals in recovery.
Taylor Made Farm’s School of Horsemanship launched March 15th with five gentlemen attending. The school provides the instructor, facility, and horses to teach individuals from the Shepherd’s House in Lexington. These gentlemen will obtain hands-on equine vocational skills and knowledge of horse care and the equine industry. Once they have completed vocational training and reach a particular benchmark in their recovery, employment in the equine industry will be facilitated.
The program’s goal is to scale it to other facilities to help a vast amount of individuals.
