    Well, not really.. We run a very small business out of our own small farm. She takes on one horse at a time to work with, and we don't rely on that income in any way. We also don't have an indoor to...

    No no, Capers Jones. He is the head of a technology business of some sort but he also published a book on Nantucket. Capers Jones isn't my main resource, he's just more of the...igniting spark?..on...

    I was thinking along these lines that some aspect that caters to tourism would help with revenue. I wasn't thinking about giving riding lessons to young children being a big thing, but I guess it is....

    Well to be quite honest I was thinking about barns, not tack stores, but that's also a good point. I think really any equestrian business in general just because of how hard it is as far as taxes and...

    Actually I'm pretty sure our biggest export other than seafood is scrap metals. But no our biggest industry as a state is tourism. Especially the islands like Block Island and Nantucket. Capers Jones...

    The glue I used was not heavy in the slightest and I said about the race horses because I know a few barns that started doing glue on shoes for race horses. A friend of mine got the glue on shoes and...

    I wouldn't say I'm ignorant of it because two of my horses have glue on shoes, and I've actually applied things like casts and dental packing myself. I don't really know of the risks to be honest...

    Tom Bloomer: I've been looking at that school, and I think that might be a winner. I've seen good things. And as far as the other course goes, my test was actually trimming a horse under her watch,...

    learning the trade (farrier)

    So, I have been exploring farrier(ing?) as a potential career option and have not found much out. I know there are a lot of potential connections I should make here with farriers I already know, but...

    Now, I don't mean to resurrect this thread at all, but I wanted to thank everyone and update you all. I feel obligated to update everyone here on my new thinking. I've looked into it a lot more..and...

    The reason I post the same question a thousand times is because each time, I'm not getting the same answers. The root of it is the same, sure, "yes you can do this, just work hard and be smart" or...

    It gets hard to read because posts digress from real, hard, advice, to things like "you're just another kid who likes horses, you just want us to tell you what you want to hear" or, "this kid comes...

    I'd like to point out I have never lied on this forum. My mother is a psychologist. She is a behavioral consultant who works for schools around the area. She trains teachers about how to handle...

    The thing is...I don't want to have a job, and spend the whole time waiting to get out to go ride. I don't want two lives, I really just want one. I feel like if I get another job, I just won't be as...
  20. Honestly, is an equestrian career really feasible?

    I'm going into my senior year this fall, and it's getting to the point where I have to start asking myself the big question of what I am going to do with my life. Growing up I have always assumed I...

    Regarding the American bred horses, I'm sorry I didn't at all mean to speak bad towards American breeders. The problem is that I just haven't had many good experiences with American breeders. Well,...
