Outside opinions needed

Ok so I am so unsure right now. I just sold chrome and my trainer has been offering me her grey gelding that I've been running. I love this horse and she says she's never seen him get along with someone the way we do. My problem is I want to go to college and I am considering online ( penn foster), Texas and bel-tea in Colorado, at this time with the money I got from chrome I can totally pay off 1200 penn foster course and get my last semester free or I can buy sugar and then do a payment plan with the price being 1400-1500 depending on which plan I can do.

I need someone to give me their opinion I don't want to give up the chance to own an awesome horse but I know school is extremely important. So have at I don't be afraid to hurt my feelings I need am outside opinion.

When it comes to school, the more you can pay up front the better off you'll be down the road.

Thanks guys its just hard I've always had a horse in my life, I'm sure I can use sugar whenever as she won't sell him he is actually the kids horse. I just always fight my decisions.

School comes first. I let my career and my horseback riding come before my education. I dropped out of college with less than a 2.0 GPA because I was wasting my money and wanted to focus on "other things." It was a big mistake. I regret not getting my degree as I don't want to work retail for the rest of my life. It is a tough industry. Take my advice, pay for school, get your education. The horses will always be there. Get a degree and a good job so you can afford to have the things you want. it pays off in the long run.

Strength is not defined by physical ability. It is determined by your actions and the compassion of your soul.

That's very true I plan on going for vet tech and eventually hopefully a vet. So I do need to get started.
