Veterinary Medicine with Equine emphasis is your best choice. Focus on vet schools that have the better Equine hospitals. Certainly the mid west would be a good area. Fair warning it's not as easy as it looks so I would advise you to get experience at a large animal clinic in your area prior to applying to vet school so your sure it's for you.
