Someday I want to own a breeding and training barn, but don't feel like college is the right path. What do you think I should do?

Yes, it is super super expensive... I hadn't thought about that, because in France, a lot of universities are public, and thus free.
Now that I'm thinking about it I do want to go to this one college, it would honestly be really helpful. But it's around 23k a year I believe and I'm scared if I go I'll be in dept for a long time.
Hello Lizzy !

This is a beautiful project your have in mind, but I think that college remains important. Indeed, it is quite tough to own a breeding and training barn and make a living out of this, so it would be good for you to have a degree, or a bachelor or whatever, in order to have a plan B. Beside, you could actually find a degree in college that would have a link with your project. Indeed, if you own a barn, you will need to know some things of management or accounting, so you could study this in college, and even if it would be a bit boring for you, it will then help you with your barn.
