I agree with Speed Racer. Besides it being more useful if the equine business idea doesn't work out, you can tell who has business knowledge just by working with someone in any field. I find the knowledge learned in business classes invaluable.
I'm currently working on a bachelors degree in business, majoring in human resources, but I've learned things to help my personal life from investing, better ways to communicate with people and law from what your entitled to as an employee to the hard to understand details in contracts such as bank loans or the real catches on insurance policies. Even criminal law is looked at in one of my classes.
All that aside, if I had to pick dealing with a boarding barn run by some good random horse person versus a random horse person with good business sense, I'll pick the latter hands down.
And my school offers co-op jobs. And if you happen to find a job in a stable that meets the management requirements, you can apply for it to be considered a co-op job position. Look for something like that. You get an education, a job for a semester and good connections in the real world.
