I was talking financial. I wouldn't plan on making a career out of any of those choices, aside from large animal vet.
There's a hundred thousand trainers and barn managers out there and unless you have ALOT of capitol to back you up, you'll probably be looking for part time work.
I thought I had it made in the shade! Then... Well, I think I'm heading back to school. Doing something non horsey. LOL
You will meet a lot of awful/bad people, but you'll meet a lot of great people, too. I just ignore all the bad ones as best as I can.
Not to sound like a downer... But I did the same thing and I wish I had done it differently. Like taking my bachelor of science (which is a great pre-med course, by the way!) so I had something to fall back on when I was struggling with bills, etc.
I LOVE my horses, but there is no way that they pay for themselves. My real job pays for my horsey hobby. LOL
