How can I take horse riding from a hobby to my life?

I have decided to have a career in horses and go to a horse university,. I am 17 but have been rding for only three years. Besides majorly increasing my personal fitness, what else can I do to make my horse riding skills increase and start thinking of competing, and having lseeons at least twice a week? Aswell I will obviously increasing my horsemanship skills as hopefully I will be getting my own horse next halfway through next year during my gap year. Any tips, besides the fact that I will be poor forever? :) Thank you in adavnce for taking my question seriously.
