Blue Haven Farm

Blue Heaven Farm ( is a boutique commercial thoroughbred breeding operation located on 191 acres in Versailles (about 15 minutes from Keeneland). We have approximately 15 mares that we breed and foal. We raise our foals and prepare them for the major weanling and yearling sales in Kentucky and Saratoga. We have a well-rounded group of mares with strong race records and pedigrees.

We are a small operation and consider ourselves a family. We treat each other and our horses with kindness, patience and respect, and do our best to create a comfortable and enjoyable workplace. We offer extremely competitive pay, health and dental coverage, paid vacation, and a housing stipend.

We are looking for someone to assist with all aspects of the thoroughbred breeding industry. This includes working closely with all types of horses (mares, foals, yearlings, and layups), sales, interacting with veterinarians and blacksmiths, and customary farm work. Experience and comfort with horses is required, but opportunities to learn and develop horsemanship will be plentiful.
