I want to groom professionally for a show barn. Well, really I'd love to be a 'professional working student'. Meaning; I want to be paid to groom, do barn work, teach beginner lessons, and exercise horses. Preferably I would make enough money doing this to have my own horse.

Whoop, hang on to that last thought! I changed my mind, I actually want to be a park ranger at Mount Rainier National Park... as a guide for those doing summit climbs! That would be fabulous!

I'd love to build my own boarding barn and run it. Or be an equine nutritionist.

I definitely don't want to be what I actually am, but it pays for my horse and nothing that I actually want to do seems like it would :sigh:

I'd vote for being a kid again, but I didn't get to ride when I was a kid, so maybe that's not an improvement.

I want to get a few years in college with horses, but eventually board and train horses.

And MAYBE do clinics.

I had this fancy idea in my mind to become an equine veterinarian, but after seeing the schooling and physical work involved, I'm just not sure that my mind or body could hold up to it since I have a lot of health problems. So instead, I'm looking into becoming an Occupational Therapist, specializing in disabled individuals but also working with stroke victims, elderly, etc. The pay is good, there will always be a demand for it, I love people and helping them accomplish goals, and I would hopefully be able to support myself and dabble in the horse world still, as well ^_^

I am currently working towards getting my Equine Canada Competitive Coaching Certification. I have always loved coaching and sharing my riding style with others. I can't wait until my hours are completed!

It's OK, if you go and see your Doc he can probably get you some treatment to help you get over that thought.

In this case prevention would save having to help you recover from the effects later in life.
