Careers for fragile bodied individuals
I've been working with farriers for almost three years now as an apprentice. It was going great! Then I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder which will end up giving me some pretty gnarly joint deterioration. According to my doctor, I'll risk accelerating the process if I'm too hard on them.
Because I'm not the smartest cookie, of course I'm going to continue my apprenticeship and give it a good college try, but I need a backup plan for when the inevitable happens.
Assuming they even exist, what are some low impact, cripple friendly, horse adjacent careers out there? I'd love it if I could keep working on something related to hooves and leg biomechanics. Is there a market for custom hoof boots or something similar?
