Equine Journalism?

Hey guys. I'm 16 and in my first semester in grade 11. Now I know I'm not in grade 12 yet but so many people I know have a lies plan already. They know what they want to be and all that. Well. I don't. I know I want to work with horses and I used to want to be a vet, but...I can't stand the blood and needles and stuff. I couldn't even give my own horse shots of antibiotics when he got hurt last summer, we had to get pills for him instead. So then I thought about my marks. I have an 83% in English right now and that will probably hit 90% by the end of the semester. I have a 93% in spanish and I barely pay attention in that class. In physics I have a 63% {bad bad bad} and in math I have a 75%.

My mom suggested I go in to journalism but I don't wanna write about boring stuff all the time like what's going on in the world. I wanna do stuff with horses! I actually wanna be a trainer/breeder/shower{showing not showering}. How do I become that and still make money. Then I thought of all the horse magazines. Should I get in to that, maybe take business management and journalism in college/university and work for a magazine like Horse Illustrated or something? Would that still leave me time to show and train and teach? My big goal is to go to Rolex and Badminton one day so...

It would be awesome, but frankly, normal journalism is hard enough to secure a job in. I don't think an equine journalism job would be much easier. Good luck though. :)

I was looking up horse jobs and on a lot of sites it said you can make good money. It would be hard though, you would need a job working for a big horse magazine.

You also need to know a LOT about journalism. Do you know how to write in journalistic style? Do you know how to interview people and how to write a news article? A lot of people don't know how to write in journalistic style, and that's something big, obviously... lol.
Not trying to rain on your parade, but I write for my small-town high school newspaper and the first thing we have to teach the intro students is how to write a GOOD article. Knowing how to write is fine, but if you mostly are a creative writer, it's a hard transition into journalistic writing.

Again, good luck. If you want something hard enough, you get it.

I don't even know if I want to go in to journalism yet. I'm just trying to find some way to always have horses as a huge major part of my life.

I'm looking at the same thing. But since you posted about journalism, that's what I answered about. Hope you can figure out what you'd like to do. :)
