I work in horse shows, and I love it. I love being in the horse industry but still (mostly) have the energy to train my horse at the end of the day. I was a working student/intern/barn manager and also small-time trained horses in college in a variety of disciplines, and while I could do it if I needed a job, it wasn't something I was passionate about enough to want to do it for the rest of my life.
I want to stay amateur so that riding never becomes work or a burden and it stays something I do for the love and fun of it. So many people get burned out in this sport and I never want that to happen.
Maybe. For now, I plan to work in marketing and communication for equestrian brands. And since years, I dream of building a shelter to rescue horses from slaughterhouse or bad treatments. I would restore their confidence and try to find them a forever family.
