    The equestrian industry is all about breaking your back for little pay. Welcome. It VERY difficult to make a living out of horses, especially if you don't want to work 7 days for 12+ hours a day.

    What you hear about are the 'success stories' the people who started with big money (to pay for the schooling, to climb the ladder). You don't hear about the 98% of 'average' people working in those industries that seem so big and glamorous, and unless you have SERIOUS skill, serious money and serious dedication to work your butt off 24/7 there isn't big money in the Equine industry. It definitely isn't for someone who doesn't want to work 24/7.

    Equine appraiser is something that an insurance company might use, but it's not a really well regarded field since that is so subjective. The certification is about $400 online. I've never seen anyone actually use an "equine appraiser" for anything - they go to their trainer. I'd be amazed if anyone was able to make a good living only as an equine appraiser.

    AI specialist is a vet, but not only that, it's a vet with lots of breeding knowledge. You'll have to have the grades - and money - to get through vet school. You're looking at probably 8-10 years of school minimum, plus another several years paying your dues in the industry with lower end work. Lots of internships, lots of working long hours for very little money. To get into the high end, you'll need to have connections to the high end horse owners.
