I agree with Slide, despite having a Bachelor's Degree in Equine Science & Training, lol!
I triple-majored in Equine Business Mgmt, Equine Science & Training, and straight up Business, to cover all my bases. I currently work in the city, while my business degree pays for me to have a horse as a hobby. That said, I ADORED my equine university experience and it opened my eyes to the horse world in a way I would never have seen if I remained in my little town with my far-from-the-big-leagues horse scene. After graduation I went to work for a big name trainer and loved it, but within a few years I had decided horse training wasn't my true calling.
Incidentally, I graduated in 2001 and am still paying off my student loans ;) I'd have considerably more left to payoff if I was still working at the ranch, as I was making about 40% of my current salary.
