  1. Equine Careers and Education
    This has been a very turbulent time for me in trying to direct my life if my forum history does not offer enough evidence. I was however able to secure a hot walker position outside Annapolis, Maryland at Laurel Park. I walked a beautiful filly after the eighth race the first day and a few...
  2. Equine Careers and Education
    Good evening everyone! I hope all is well! I am currently attending Asbury University, and our program is great. I feel welcomed there, and I know the horses. Unfortunately, I do not have anymore riding classes left, so the hands-on experience is mostly gone. I am new to horses in my experience...
  3. Horse Talk
    Hi all! I'm currently going to college to get a major in animal science with emphasis on horse care and equine management. I've been riding for all of my life, and I show/rodeo/ compete very frequently. I've done a lot of training, too. I know that I am competent (even though I also know how...
  4. Horses for Sale
    Long story short, I bought a skinny little thoroughbred 3 years ago that was supposedly a calm trail horse. Turned out he was a horrible bucker and dangerous to ride. Within a year, I ended up retiring him, due to the fact I think his bucking was caused by an unknown physical issue and was now...
  5. Horse Talk
    I am a student in the Equestrian program at my college, and we have what's called a winter drill coming up. I ride a big paint horse named Bandit, and I am in need of costume ideas, as we are all supposed to dress up our horses (and ourselves) according to the theme. Our theme this year is...
  6. Horse Boarding
    Hay y'all! I'm finishing up my junior year at a pretty well known (within the region) private high school that can get me accepted to (almost) anywhere. We have three people in our senior class out of 84 this year that have been accepted to Harvard, and one isn't even going! Anyways, I'm here...

The open house is on October 29th from 2-5 pm. The silent auction starts at 2:30-4:00. We would love...
  8. Equine Careers and Education
    Okay, so I have my riding test at olds college next week but I've got a few last questions for....anyone :) they have a riding test (I have to complete two because I'm testing for English and western horsemanship) and a practical test. I was told I have a 20% chance of being accepted into my...
  9. Equine Careers and Education
    I'm currently taking equine courses online at the University of Guelph and I wanted to post this because I think they're amazing and I highly recommend them. I've taken business management, and am currently taking management of the equine environment. From what I've seen the courses are...
  10. Horse Talk
    Hey everyone! I haven't been a very active member on this forum but I enjoy lurking and gaining knowledge from all you crazy horse experts. :loveshower: So here's my first real post on here. I'm at that point in my education where I really need to decide what to do with my life so I don't waste...
  11. Art and Craft Work
    Due to an unfortunate mix up in scheduling, yours truly is taking Drawing 1 instead of Calculus. This may seem like a good thing. It is not a good thing. The problem is that I have never had any formal art instruction. So this thread is hopefully going to be the place I post pictures of my...
  12. Horse Talk
    So I have long been a working student for my BO and instructor which has turned into "ride and train whichever horse you like except for the blind one" and it has been grand. I have loved working with the horses as if they are my own and am quite proud of where they are right now. I am leaving...
  13. Equine Careers and Education
    I am a sophomore in high school but of course I am already looking into my future. I currently show AQHA in mainly hunter under saddle and equitation with my current horse but with my old horse I did western pleasure and horsemanship as well. I also plan on doing horsemanship and showmanship...
  14. Equine Careers and Education
    Hi everyone, wasn't completely sure where to post this but hoping you guys here can help me! Kind of a long shot but I need help! I have to write a college paper on an ecommerce business, so naturally I chose something horse-related- HorseLoverZ.com, the "largest online tack store." I have...
  15. Equine Careers and Education
    I know you have to have good grades and obviously have a high level of skill when it comes to equestrian scholarships but do you actually have to own a horse? It would be a dream come true to get a scholarship to college and be able to compete so any other helpful information you'd have would be...
  16. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    I am looking for a college with Equine majors (Majoring in horse nutrition, horse science, and training). An equestrian Eventing team offering all levels, though venting is not mandatory. Dorms hopefully, near or at the stables. I am open to anywhere in Europe, Canada, and the east coast of the...
  17. General Off Topic Discussion
    So... I have been looking at horse colleges, though I am only a 15 year old sophomore. I want to be a horse trainer, one that travels and does clinics/shows. I also want to compete as a barrel racer and own a few breeding horses, but I mostly want to train. This leads me to my question. I want...
  18. Teen Talk
    ...but I can't turn it back easily. I was talking about this to a friend of mine who lives in NYC. From what I've been told, when you go to college in the US, you can change your major in the first two years easily, so she didn't understand why I didn't just change my course if I was not happy...
  19. Teen Talk
    Does anyone have any ideas on how to raise $700? I really want to apply to all of the Ivy League schools, and my parents won't support me. Its costs over $600 for all of the application fees, and another hundred for sending ACT scores. Does anyone have any ideas? I may seem crazy, but I really...
  20. Equine Careers and Education
    So I am looking into Canyonview College and they have a 2 year horse program, they are not an actual college. They offer a certificate and I believe you get CHA certified at least on some level. I can't find reviews on this place anywhere! So I was just wondering if anyone attended or knows any...
