What equine degree/college should I pursue?

Ok so I have a few questions: What are some horse careers/jobs that aren’t as well known? What colleges have an emphasis on horsemanship and not just competing/riding? What equine degree is the most general to any horse job (in case I wanna explore different aspects)? Is it okay to go to a college with an emphasis on horses as a slight beginner? I’m definitely not a beginner, but I’m definitely not a horse guru either, so I feel like I’d be behind. . . Right now I’m planning on going to BYU Provo for my required credits than going to a college with an emphasis on horses. . . Is this a good plan? While I’m at BYU should I get a part time job working at a barn? I just want the most experience I can get. Little bit about me if it helps: I’m definitely not the stereotypical cowgirl. I’ve worked at a barn with horses for 4 years, and I have been training this gelding for a bit with my trainer. I have an emphasis on relationship and trust with the horses, bodywork, and training is something I love doing. I’ve never competed, and I’m not sure if I’d be interested in doing so. . . You can tackle any or all questions, thanks for reading!

What are some collages that have equestrian classes and are able to bring your horse?

Hi! I am a Junior in high school and it's about time I start looking for schools. I want to do somthing with horses, but I don't know where to start. I have a horse and I don't want to have to sell him when I go to collage. I would like to bring him or have someone pay me to lease him if that is a thing. He is a really cool guy.

Is my career choice a good decision?

I'm only a freshman in high school, so I am able to change my decision, but I think this is probably what I want to do. I just wanted some more peoples' opinions about it, whether I should minor in something else as a backup plan or something. So, my plan is to major in an equine degree in college, probably Equine Studies unless there is a better one offered. After college, I really want to have my own farm for people to board their horses and be a horse trainer and a riding instructor. Do you think I'll be making enough to have a good and comfortable life? I don't know if I want to have kids yet, and if I do I'll probably only want one or two, so do you think I'd be able to provide for them (if they exist) and myself, plus a SO? Also, how long do you think it would take to build that business after college? I would have to buy the land/house/barn(s), make sure fencing was good, and that would be a lot of money alone. I also don't know where I would want to live, so any ideas of where would be the most beneficial/cost efficient/best overall would be great. I've always wanted to work with horses, in Kindergarten when they ask you what you want to be, I said a Cowgirl. I showed and rode for a few years, but it was expensive and the horses I used weren't great (one was too old and the other went lame), so I've had to stop, and since then it's been my goal to make a life with horses. I also wanted to be a teacher for a while. I think this is what I really want to do. Are there any other little jobs I could do to make extra money if I need? Preferably including horses or teaching? Sorry this is so long, but any answers would be amazing!

Does anyone know of any good equine colleges?

I have a few years to think about it, so it's not a rushed decision by any means, but I have been looking around at colleges and have a small list. I was wondering if anyone else had any other colleges that would be good for me to add to my list. So, I want to go to college and major in Equine Studies or some other equine major. I plan to be a horse trainer and/or riding instructor, and my dream is to start a business where I can do both, and probably and up boarding horses and offering transportation services too. Some colleges that I've been thinking about are the University of Findlay, William Woods University, Emory & Henry University, and a couple others. I just kind of want some other colleges with good equine programs, and if anyone knows any other majors that would suit my needs better, that'd be great to know too.

How do I decide what I want to do and know I’m making a good choice ?

I’ve been torn between something in the medical field like physical therapy, nursing, dental hygienist, or a pharmacist or I also really wanted to do cosmetology school or equine dentistry. I’ve been around horses my whole life so I enjoy it a lot and I’ve also been doing hair and makeup my whole life. I enjoy a lot of stuff but I’m having a hard time deciding. I just want to make sure I have enough money to support myself and a family when I’m older #healthcare #medicine #cosmetology #equine

Advice for aspiring horse trainers and horse riding instructors from low-income families?

I really want to be both a horse trainer and a horse riding instructor, however, I come from a low-income family who can't afford horses, pickups, trailers, a farm house, or anything of that sort. I'm currently a senior in high school who plans on going to college for Equine Management, however I'm not quite sure if I'll be able to have the career I truly want because I was born into a low-income family and will have a hard time paying for these things, including college itself. Are there any horse trainers and/or riding instructors that you know of (or if you're one yourself) that came from a low-income family and is now a horse trainer and/or a riding instructor? Are there any grants specifically for students going into equine related majors? If you're a trainer and/or an instructor, what steps did you take to get where you are today? Thank you! #career #college-major #equine #horse #horsetrainer #horseriding #horseridinginstructor

What would be the best college for horse trainers and horse riding instructors?

I've been accepted into an Iowa community college recently for Equine Management, however I'd like to look at some other options also. I live in South Dakota currently, and I would prefer to stay close to South Dakota in case something happens and I need to come back home. Where did you go to college? Did you go to college at all? If so, do you feel that what you've learned there helps you in your day-to-day job with horses? Thank you! #horse #equine #horseriding #horseridinginstructor #horsetrainer

Where would be the best area to live in to work as a horse trainer and a riding instructor?

I currently live in South Dakota, but I plan on going to college in Iowa for Equine Management. Would Iowa be a good place to work in for training and instructing? If not there, what other areas would bring me the most clients and would be good environment-wise? (weather, terrain, etc.) I would prefer to stay close to South Dakota, but I'm willing to go farther if I need to. Thank you! #horse #equine #horseriding #horseridinginstructor #horsetrainer

Is there a field of study or a career path for combining my love of horses (equine science) and biomedical science without becoming a vet?

I am trying to find a career path that will integrate my two passions: equestrian and biotechnology. I love hands on science lab work and would like to do something with horses. Perhaps involve genetics, IVF, gestation, etc with horses. #medicine #veterinary #biotechnology #genetics #veterinary-technician #equine

Would you recommend being an equine veterinarian or a small animal veterinarian?

I've talked to my equine vet and he's told me before to be a small animal vet because they have better hours and get paid more. The reason I'm asking this is because I have a true passion for horses and I've grown up with them, but I also love small animals. Any advice at all would help me greatly! #veterinarian #veterinary-medicine #equine #science #medicine
