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.
