Dream horse job

What would be your dream equine job?
Ranch manager
Mounted cop
US border potral

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.

I'm living it :)

I have a farm I co-manage with my best friend. We're currenly leasing the farm, and hope to buy some day. I train, instruct and show, have sales prospects and do equine massage on the side.

Very happy with where I am :)

For mine, I probably have to only get through college, and then get some funds to start up. And it's not only a horse job.

I'm wanting to get a double degree, in business and in veterinary medicine, a doctrite in veterinary medicine.

Then, I'm wanting to move back to Serbia, and then start a Humane Association here (a real one, not one that just captures strays and euthenizes them (or shoots them) without doing much else), and begin taking in animals as soon as possible. It might start out really small, just a two or three acre piece of land that I'll keep stray dogs and stuff on, and some advertising to encourage pet owners to spay and neuter. But I'm hoping to make it a large thing, like the SPCA or something else similar to what they have in the States.

It'll take a lot of work, but that's my dream.

i'd manage a ranch that specialized in riding for disabled children...I'd probably need a lot of schooling and stuff... but I think that would be pretty kick butt...

And love like crazy"

I'm living it too! I'm a trainer.

I teach riding lessons, which takes a great deal of patience but is oh so fun and incredibly rewarding.

And I train horses. So basically, if I did any other job I'd be paying to ride. But here people pay me! Plus I get paid to show several horses. The only thing is, most of the horses I ride I'm riding because they're either really green or need some work, so I have yet to find that really special upper level horse I'd love to have. So if I could change one thing, it'd be a big time investor who'd like to get me a nice grand prix horse. Anyone? Anyone?
