It is my dream to own a barn with happy boarders, nice lesson horses, beautiful facilities, etc.
I am not sure where to start. I am only in grade 10, and I know that horses cost a lot of money, and are a huge responsability... trust me, I own two at the moment and I notice that sometimes there isn't as much money for groceries than there was before my family bought them.
I am currently working 3 days a week as a farm hand to help pay for my horse's board. I also ride a fellow boarder's horse to give her more training and experience.
I was thinking of maybe taking a business course in college so I could run a business properly, but now I'm thinking maybe an equine management course?
I am currently working towards becoming a certified trainer; I already have some qualifications.
Where do I start? I can't get another job because of school and I am unable to drive yet.
This is my dream and I don't want to give up on it, but I feel that financially I will be unable to accomplish building and running my own horse barn...
I am confused on what to do, help?
--> I should have mentioned that I am fairly experienced with horses; I have been riding for 10 years, and showing for 7. I have helped my trainer with green and unbroke horses, and I have learned a lot from her.
