Equine Careers??

I'm only a freshman, but my high school offers litterally hundreds of different electives. I mean it's like a college registration booklet of courses to choose from. So I'd obviously like to take full advantage of that! However I have NO clue what I want to do when I'm older. I (obviously) love horses, so it'd be great if I could do something with them. The only thing is I do want to make a decent amount of money. (No, not it a materialistic way. I just want to be able to comfortably afford to have my own horses.) I know the obvious; vet, farrier, instructor, but none of them are really my thing. I love science and I suppose I'm alright at math (I'm taking Geometry as a 14 year old. If I stay on this track I'll have taken all Calc options possible plus AP Statistics when I graduate...)
So are there any interesting horse-related science-type careers? Also, if you have any idea what it pays I'd love to know. Thanks!
