Difference between Psychologist and a Psychiatrist and some information on both?

Well I was just wondering the differences as I dont really understand, I'm thinking of career choice and its something I'm interested in, I was just wondering what the training consists of and whether you can specialize in more than one area - such as Clinical psychology, Counseling psychologists and Developmental psychologists? Also can you take a degree in animals too? But more of a behaviourist and then specialize in horses? Thanks!
