I'm currently in school, but i am looking to take horse riding as a career. I am going to start study my stage one now, just wondering if anyone knows how to juggle college and studying, whilst working at a stable yard?
Thanks :) [/i]
When I was in school full time it was really hard to keep up with work and study/homework time. We have up to 30+/- horses at a time here...so being one of only 3 barn hands can be a task. I'd wake up at 5 head to the barn to clean stalls/feed...when I'd get back from school I'd have to go straight back to the barn to ride or work with a horse...plus feed and try to squeeze in some riding time with my own personal horses. Plus when it was show season, I was in charge of line up...which was I'd pull a horse out, tack it up and get it ready to go when the trainer would bring back in another horse that I would have to take...hose it off/groom and put up...then repeat. It got to the point were my grades were suffering. The only good thing about it was that my work is here at home. I ended up cutting back on some of my classes.
I average about two classes a term and am now comfortable with balancing school and work.
Thanks for the reply dtwh,
wow you must be working hard! :D
I'm really confused about what i should do because i really want a career in horses but i also want to keep studying business. I've looked all over and cannot find a college course to fit into my working time table at the stable yard. :cry:
Yeah, it wears me out at times, but I love it!
I'm kinda confused as to what you're wanting to work in...? Horse related business?
I'm a bit of a dunce so excuse me. lol
Lol, yes i'm looking to work with horses after my training but keep up my studying whilst training. :?:
Do you know what kind of horse related business you're wanting to do?
I'm studying to be a vet tech, it's a great program. I know I'll never be driving a porche or anything (not that I would want one, God only know what it would look like after a day at the barn lol) but it's a comfortable job and that's what I'm looking for.
