I want to be an assistant trainer at hopefully a really good barn when ' I grow up' . I am planning on working at a small local barn through the rest of high school and then getting a position as a working student (Intern) before(or after-who knows) going to a college with a major in Equine Studies. I probably won't be able to afford Findlay(which would be my top choice) although it is still a candidate because my parents will be paying whatever they can, I will be paying whatever I can and pushing in a loan, as well as scholarships. Findlay will be quite a tight stretch. I would love to go to Meredith Manor and major in jumping, many people have complained about the dorms, and heavy work load but that all sounds like fun to me. This isn't just a dream, or a hobby to me- this is what I want to do with my life. I think MM would be good for me because of the training opportunities as well as for jumping. Because of how touchy the horse world can be I do have a backup plan as a real estate agent if the horse world falls through after college. The last thing I want to do is become a business major- no. This is defiantly what I want to do with my life even if that means working crazy hard and barley getting by for my entire life. I can do this.
I don't want to major in equine science or anything, I want to defiantly get hands on work done.
-Which college do you guys recommend? (Not only limited to Findlay or Meredith manor of course.)
Heck maybe I won't even end up going to college if the oppertunity rolls around after being a working student.
Thanks so much everyone!
