Kristen Anderson returned to Miner in late August to begin an equine internship for the next year. Kristen was a summer experience in equine management student in 2013. She graduated this past May from the University of New Hampshire with a Bachelor of Science degree in equine industry and business management. Kristen took courses that taught her things like how to build a barn; truck and trailer driving; and equine business and economics.
Kristen is happy to be back at Miner. “I love Miner,” she said, adding that she loves the barn and the horses. “Everything is so tidy and everyone is so friendly.” Coming from New Hampshire, Kristen knows exactly what to expect from a North Country winter and it doesn’t intimidate her. Winter is her favorite season, she says.
The coming year will be a great opportunity for Kristen to figure out what she likes and what she doesn’t like to help pave the way in her career, she says. Eventually she would like to own and operate her own horse farm where she trains and sells horses. She enjoys working with young horses and would maybe like to rehab horses from auctions and offer riding lessons. She loves New England and hopes to remain in the Northeast.
