Anyone done a significant time with no horse contact? (Year+)
I recently graduated college. I grew up as a once a week lesson kid and came into college w/t/c & jumping cross rails. Had no significant concept of leads, distances, etc. Over the last couple years I've been able to take lessons multiple times a week and my riding has improved exponentially. People are now paying me to condition or care for their horses. My goal is to buy my very first horse in 2014. Basically, I'm on a real upswing in my horse career...
Well today I was offered a nice job (I'm currently working temp or p/t jobs). It's with a great company and I think I would really enjoy the job and the people. The catch? It's in Costa Rica.
So who has spent a year or more away from horses when they didn't really want to? The big problem is, I don't know what I want to do for my career. Recently some things have pointed me to pursuing horses, and I feel like this would throw a real hitch in that. On the other hand, it's f***in' Costa Rica and I feel like I would be crazy to give it up!
Words of wisdom please.
