I am currently a Junior in high school, and I've started looking for colleges. My biggest concern is that I want to bring my 12-year old TB gelding to college with me, to continue riding and preferably showing. I would love to join an Eventing team, (I am currently a Novice level Eventer working towards Training in the next few months) but I worry that it will be too expensive, as I have 3 younger siblings and my parents just aren't sure if they can pay for both college plus all the boarding/vet/farrier/training fees. My current goal is to try to get a full-ride scholarship to a school where I can at least board my horse nearby. I will probably major in Studio Art or English; I have a cumulative 3.95 GPA, so hopefully that will help somewhat.
Does anyone have any suggestions/advice? Anything and everything is appreciated.
