    Hmm. I dunno what to say. I've always just...... just known, I guess. I've always wanted to be a large animal vet, and that's just how it's been. LOL. You can go to colleges here on Equestrian scholarships and compete on the collegiate level..... That would help you to be a show jumper, I think.

    I think your'e probably in the minority if you know what to do at 15 , most people I know just kind of fell into the jobs they are doing. Just remember you don't have to do the same job for the next forty years you can change your job at any time and you probably will as you go through your working life - as for wanting to be a showjumper if you really want it go for it!!!!

    You could always do what the first person said. Look for a school in a good horse area where you could continue to pursue riding as a passion/hobby. At school though, you could get a degree in business. Its a good focus because there are lots of routes and careers you could end up in. It would even set you up good to own and manage your own horse training facility and give lessons/ train horses etc etc. That way if the showjumping thing didn't pan out you would have a good degree to fall back on. Just a thought ;) Good luck though, you have plenty of time to figure things out but any knd of college education is better then none.

    I have the same problem, im 18, all my friends are in college and im still working in a pet store to support my horse, and not attending any school. I got accepted into both schools I applied to, but I can't decided if I can handle vet tech school or not, or if its really what I want to do. Deciding what you want to do as a job is so difficult.

    I could have written that. And participating college is so expensive that I really don't want to study there for a year or half and then find that I actually wanted to study something else.
