you may have figured this out already but I'm kinda in the same boat. I'm 20, going to school for welding because I know you can make bank doing it. I love doing it and hate doing it. I'm from WI, but come July of 2012 I'm moving to WY... you may not have much money but if you plan ahead and find some people out there that can help you out then take it from there. That's what I'm doing aways.. If things don't work out you always will know where home is...

Have you ever thought about going abroad to work on a yard where they offer food and accommodation (plus pay) in return for work? Like in France or Germany?
I'd love to go do that, if I was single I probably would!!

To ride or not to ride? ... What a stupid question!!

I wouldn't advise Germany.
I don't know about France.
It is a VERY difficult market to get in to. Out here, if you're single with no children you pay I think 40% tax on earnings over €400.
Not only that, but GP riders are a dime a dozen, and that's what they look for. Being female also doesn't help, unless the trainer/owner isn't interested in females.
I know a friend of mine au pairs in France, and she was picked up by a family in Paris- she now has an apartment supplied to her which is bigger than my house, which is fairly roomy. Sometimes it pays off, but do your research first.

I don't think I could leave my boyfriend!

I have an update anyway guys I am predicted to finish this college course with D*D*D* and I now have a place waiting for me at a horse college to study a level 3 extended diploma. The yard I will be doing my practicals at employ most of their students at the end of the course part time. The plan is to save money from this job and maybe try for my bhs exams.

I'm just happy to get a place studying horses
