Well, a CCI**** eventing career would be nice ;) And I'll continue working towards that, with my working student positions and such.
Other than that, I really want to work with off-the-track Thoroughbreds, retraining and rehoming them. I LOOOVE working with Thoroughbreds :) And I really want to see them come back into popularity in the way they used to.
I'd also like to do freelance equine journalism and commissioned portraits on the side.

Barn manager! I would love that! :) But I would work with all the foals on my own! I love that part of owning horses.

It can be done. There is a girl that I went to school with in a tiny town. She went to college and got her degree in equine reproduction or whatever it is and now she is a breeding assistant for one of the biggest QH ranches here in Texas. Her name is Jessie Waite.

As for me, I am about to embark on my dream job. This spring, I am going to start taking in horses to train for customers. I am really looking forward to it and it seems like every time I turn around, there is another person contacting me. I have 3 QH breeders with numerous horses, 1 Arab breeder with a couple of horses, 1 local ranch manager with a ton of horses, and one member here that may be looking for me as a trainer. It's going to be hard to keep my numbers down to a manageable level. I will probably end up doing some day labor at local ranches and feedlots too just to round out my training and make a little extra money as well (not that I'll really need the money). LOL.

I have much the same plans. I thought that losing my job would be awful but it has opened up opportunities that I thought I had passed up for good. I have a riding job lined up this summer and several horses to train once the weather turns a little.

As far as dream job I would like to manage a ranch and if it wasn't for the nasty places you have to live I would like US Border patrol but I hate extreme dry heat and extreme cold so unless Idaho gets sold to Canada I will pass on that.

I speak enough spanish to make it plain they shouldn't be sneaking across the border! Very humid heat means you can't sit still enough in deep enough shade to keep from sweating right? Maybe we could give California back to Mexico and then I would only have to move to Nevada.

NYC mounted police, and I plan to pursue that too. Also I will (hopefully) live on a small hobby farm with five or six horses and take in a rescue/training project now and again.
