Unless you have an unlimited trust fund and money to burn on marketing yourself, your barn, and your horses very heavily, you're not likely to make it big in the horse world. Even then, word of mouth will make or break you.
Where is all this money supposed to come from? The people who have made it big all STARTED with money. Without the start up capital and top notch horses, facility, trainers and instructors on board, hard work just won't be enough.
You have to be willing to start at the BOTTOM of the heap and work your way up. Nobody's going to hand you the keys to a fifty million dollar facility just because you want it.
At 18 y/o you're still young enough to be able to dream big. That's good, but you also need to have a hard, practical streak and realize that for every one person who makes it big in the horse world, there are 10,000 more who don't.
