Have you ever thought of something that would fit into horses that works as a second job per say? I have a herd of black angus cows and i get quite a bit of money from them in good years. Plus i am also inheiriting a chicken farm from my parents that usually make quite a bit of money
(though i have to wait for those!)

I don't know about in Texas but in Canada school teachers are well paid, get a week or 10 days off at Xmas and the same at Easter or Spring Break, plus two months in the summer. That coincides nicely with good riding weather.

i dunno if anybody else has said it yet but honestly you may be better off going for something very broad like business managemetn. it would benefit you towards having your boarding facility and if all else fails it would help you to find another job in the non horsey world if need be.

I went to Colorafo State and am now a breeding manager at a small warmblood facility. I have a business minor as well, since CSU focuses a lot on making you a professional, not just teach you about anatomy. As someone who is in e equine world now, my advice is to go for something BROAD. I think equine science was a great major for me (although I did all the extra breeding and science classes possible to get more out of it) and would absolutely recommend it to someone. By broad I just mean don't limit yourself to one breed or only training young horses or only doing eventing. Learn lots of different things in the horse world so that you are flexible and well rounded. You don't want to get so specific that it's impossible to find a job. Learn how to be good at training, business management, soil and crop management, finance, accounting, equine nutrition, and get experience at many different barns and you will set yourself up for a Lot more success.
