Skip the horse idea, there's no money in it. Pick a high paying career and then you can afford horses as a hobby.

Just thouhgt you may want to look into them. I'm in Florida too, so I like SCAD, seeing as it's not too far from here(:
I looked into SCAD! But you have to also major in some kind of art in order to do there... I'm definitely no art major haha! You should really look into WTAMU! I really didn't like how far it was from where I am, but the people there are so nice and the campus is pretty too! I looked into what classes they offer for equine studies, and they have both an equine studies (which includes nutrition, health, riding, training, etc) and then an equine industry which is like business (or so it seemed from the description). Also, if you get on the equestrian team they give you in-state rates, which by the way is about 3k a year :) Which was definitely a plus for me!

A friend of mine went to Oklahoma State University (OSU) and went through their equine study program. He went on to train reining horses...first working under a trainer in OK somewhere, then overseas in Denmark and Italy. He's been pretty successful considering the fact that he did not grow up learning any horse sense at all. I've seen some of his horses and they turn out nicely.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

What top 10 list for horse schools? I haven't seen that before.
