What horse careers should I consider?
I'm in high school, and I lease a horse at a local barn. I'm really into horses, and I've been riding since i was 10. I want to know which direction I should be headed if I want my career to involve horses. I'm looking for a job that allows me to be in charge, and work with horses daily. I would like to earn a steady living, be educated in the horse field, and gain tons of experience in the equine industry. Any ides?
