For now, I am hoping ot go to Black Hawk College East to get an A.S. in Equestrian Sciences. (I know if I apply I automatically get in) After that, what I do will depend on my specific areas of interest, admittance, and the amount of scholarships I get.
Right now, I am planning on going to get certified in equine dentistry and then get my certification to be a farrier. In the long run, I want to build a large indoor show arena, give lessons, do some training, and maybe take in a few boarders. And the dentistry and farrier work will be my main source of income.
I'm not the type of person who has the patience or mental capacity to do the same thing day in, day out. I'm hoping when I take the horse management course at our school (I've got 7 weeks until I take it
), I can "zoom" in some areas that really peak my interest.
Yeah, my career path isn't set in stone. I just know I want to work with horses.
