working with horses for first job

I've been looking for a job for over a year now and haven't been having any luck. I'm turning 17 next month and have only had a couple of interviews. None of which have been any good (I need advice on that).

Last Friday my sister, my mom, and I went to Medieval Times in Chicago for my sisters 21st birthday. Of course the first thing on my mind was a job so I asked a lady who works there. She was very nice and went and got an application during the show then told me to wait for the head trainer to come out after the show to ask any questions. When the trainer came out my sister reconized him from her work. She works at Costco in the food court and Mario the trainer had came in earlier that week. He had come in wearing his riding clothes and my sister had talked to him about me and my horses. Anyways when we went up to him he reconized my sister then started asking me about my riding. We talked then he asked me if I wanted to see the horses that he trains. I of course said YES! He talked to the manager about it then after an agreement we had a tour of the stables. Mario said I can use him as a refrence on the application as he is the head trainer and has been with Medieval Times for 16 years. I'm very excited to apply and want the job very much, but there are a few problems.

Medieval Times is a good 30 minutes from my house without traffic and I would need to get a car before getting the job. Also since it is so far away I would be spending more money on gas then I would if I got a job closer to home. I know that this is a very good in for getting into the horse buisness but I don't know if it is the right choice to apply. What do you guys think? I have the application all filled out and everything but I am to indecisive to make a decision. Please give me some advice. Thank you.

Well, IMO, the first thing you should work out is a reliable way to get there and back every day before you even put in the application. It would be really bad if you got the job and had to be late a lot or couldn't even show up some days because of transportation. Once you have that worked out, then put in your application.
