Wow, a lot of mixed feelings going on here. I'm going to be the odd one out to say that I also have a Bachelor's of Science in Equine Studies and it was 100% worth it. Is it harder to find a decent job, sure, but it is what you make it. I think it also depends on the school and type of degree/education. My program was strictly hands-on and covered a variety of skills, with no riding team, and only 8 graduates in my class. Being such a small group we had more time with our professors and it felt one-on-one rather than a "class". I also got my equine sports massage therapy certification through my equine program, along with the opportunity to take an internship of a lifetime that I only received through my college connections. My best friend actually dropped out of the equine program her first year, got an associates in business, and wishes she had stayed because she hates her job. Not saying everyone feels the same, but it definitely goes both ways. I spent my whole life listening to others tell me "You'll never do anything with an equine degree...keep it as a hobby" but with every horse comes a person attached with a checkbook. Trust me I am one of them!
There are jobs out there...you may have to fight for them...but nothing worth doing comes easy
