Best major for my horse career?

I am planning to become a stable manager--
I will board horses, train horses, and train riders. If it is very successful, I will hire trainers and riding coaches (I doubt that will happen any time soon, if it all....but you have to plan for these things!!)

Anyway, what would be a good major for me to look into, to help me be successful with this job?

**I plan to take some horse related courses, including some pre-vet classes. I also plan to compete on the university's equestrian team.

Personally, I would either have Equine Science and Business as my major and minor (Either Equine Major/Business Minor or Business Major/Equine Minor) or double major in both so that you have knowledge in business management knowledge and skills, while still knowing about equine health, nutrition, and the industry, etc.

Definitely business. Animal science or biology wouldn't hurt.

Experience will be your best investment for what you want to do. I suggest you get a degree in something you can live off of while you get your name out there & your stable going strong.
I hope your dreams come true.

You can gain horse experience without going to college. Spend the college money on a degree that will be a good return on your investment. If nothing else, focus on a business major, because running your business well will make it successful. You may have great horse sense, but if you have no business sense, you'll end up struggling.

Engineering, then you have enough money to do whatever you want! That's the solution I have found.
