Hey! So I am a student that goes to school from around 8:30-4:00 on the week days so I know how you feel. I go to school and then to the barn right after.
I do all my work after I go to the barn. :)

About the smell, I would bring a change of clothes with you.
Bring a different pair of pants, shirt, etc. and change in a bathroom at your barn.
If you don't have a bathroom at your barn, change in your car or at work before you go.

I really hope all works out for you :)

You can do this, but it takes great planning.
I have mine in the back yard, and I have to cover my hair. DH says he can't even tell I've done my morning chores smelling my hair, but I'm convinced that it picks up the barn, if I don't cover it with a CLEAN hat!
You need a nail scrub brush and good, clean gloves, too. I would also brush my hair with some cologne before I went to work.
My work is in direct opposition to my outside passions. I drive to people's homes with 150 odd papers of mortgage to sign, and I'm expected to have clean, dressy clothes, clean nails, made up, etc., so it's a challenge, which is why I'm so blessed to keep my horses in the back yard. I can go out as early as I wish, then take a shower before any closing.
BUT, you can do this!!!
I think I'd wash my hands with Dove soap so that they don't dry out after being at the barn. Certainly a good workout in the morning makes you LOOK better than your sedentary co-workers!
If you can schedule several days to ride uber early, you'll avoid the crowds. I knew somebody who was at the barn at 5 AM to school.

Also use some perfume/deodorant... Then you definitely won't smell after doing the horses. Just squirt some on when your done and off you go!

I don't find indoor horses to smell more but the BARN traps the smeels and hence smells more.

Depends on how much you do and your set up.

Change of clothes and body spray.

Now if you really need to dress up there's more you can do but for casual/casual professional the above is fine. (I rarely use perfume)

I also like to use the body spray on my hair or bring some hair spray. I find even with the pony tail/bun I ALWAYS use at the barn my hair catches the smell more than everything. So I cover the best I can wash hands splash water on face/exposed skin, change/spray nice smelling stuff, make up/dress up as needed or desired.

I work at a barn so it works out LOL!
