What do you want to be?

So, what do you wanna be when you grow up? A pro dressage rider? Or barrel racer? Both? A vet? A farrier or riding instructor? Or maybe a horse-owning criminal justice detective or nurse? Well, what do YOU want to be?
I want to be a jockey! Maybe an eventer if I somehow shoot up eight inches :)

Um, well...I really don't know. I'm going to college for Production and breeding and then Animal health technologist so I'll need to do some research as to what that can get me LOL

As a child I always wanted to be an equine veterinarian, now I would love to be an Equine Podiatrist. But, now that I am having to make the decision, I'm working on getting into nursing school. :) It also interests me, just not as much. But, the hours are good, pay is good, and there will always be a job available wherever I decide to move. I will easily be able to support my horsies and have time to enjoy the things I want to do. :)

I want to get my degree in Marine Biology (i love sea life), but i want to compete for as long as i possibly can. After my competition life is over i want to get my certificate to be a certified trainer and open my own barn with my (hopefully) horse minded husband. (it will have aquariums in it lol) Train jumpers who hope to be something in this world just like me and watch them grow into the champions every passion filled rider should be.

Currently though, im just a 17yo girl with heart and a dream and a love of jumping and the horses in it. :)

Horses are angels without wings!

I want to just not have to worry about living paycheck to paycheck. I have up on "what I wanted to be" a long time ago.

I want to be something that has enough financial flexibility to allow me to have horses for the rest of my life.

I have a couple options so far, but whatever I "become", I never want to lose my inner child. (Not that I think that'll be a problem really...)
