    Well this may not help you but im thinking about getting a degree in barn/stable management and lessons, training, ect. For my first collage degree and then go back and get my vet tech because only 5 out of 100 get to pass or get in... something like that and I would have a degree to fall back on if that doesnt work out..

    A business degree is a good choice if you want to run a horse (or dog) related business. It also gives you something to fall back on if it doesn't work out.

    I'd avoid animal related degrees (except for veterinary related ones) as most horse people don't really care about them for things like trainer, barn manager, etc.

    I wouldn't really say that... Some people like it when you get a degree in an equine specialty, make yousound more professional. Also I will be taking Equine Science majoring in Business and Event Management, Big barns look for a BM that has some good schooling behind them.

    Would you hire person 1 because they have a few years of experience or person 2 who has a few years of profesional schooling?

    Thing like technology, nutrition, business startagies and medical information are best taught by professionals and not by trial and error... You just have more education.

    I do polo grooming on the side. Three years ago when I started, I thought I would stand out with my rehab degree and experience. Not so. Many of the full-time grooms (I'm only seasonal) are vet techs, have course work in massage and myofascial release. Can reset a shoe and repair tack quickly. Fewer have course work in nutrition and basic physiology. And they are willing to travel, work 7 days a week, and tolerate all kinds of weather. A conversational level skill in Spanish (all regions) is a plus.

    They are not in it for the money.
