It's funny. I am doing the same thing. I've always loved reading, but grew up riding horses. Since I knew showing horses wasn't really a job I turned to jockey-ing haha. I had been to Kentucky and during some tours I exercised some of the thoroughbreds there. Against my own will, my mom wanted me to go to college and work on my literature side, and am working on an English education degree and moving down to Kentucky after graduation to work for my license. Since we're practically doing the same thing GOOD LUCK!
