I love riding so much, and I work at a local SIRE center over the summer, which helps teach disabled kids to ride, but I don't want to go into it as an actual job. I would like to go pro with riding and make the USDF young rider program in a few years....

This is almost exactly what i want to do... i'm better and more patient with animals than people. I think i want to own an equine rehabilitation centre

I would love to have a horse so much!!!! I get to take lessons during the summer when I visit the states but it's an average of 10 lessons per year. not the greatest but still really awesome! I got to work with some of the horses- grooming, sponging, riding, lunging and massaging. There's this one horse that I worked with a lot that was pretty spooky and I sponged him and then i got to massage him with a towel it was awesome because he was acutally calming down! SO COOL!

omg! I am so sad. I have always wanted to be a horse rider, but I actually have never ridden a horse without someone holding onto its bridle. I have wanted to MY WHOLE LIFE!!!!! I love horses, I wouldn't even mind mucking out stalls. Plus we don't have a big enough property, and horses are expensive.

Aww this article makes me realize how much i love my horse. I would give anything for him! Even my house! He is the best ever! Riding a horse is the greatest feeling!
My aunt works with challenged kids and adults who ride horses for therapy. Sometimes i go out and help and its totally worth it seeing those kids and even adults' proud smiles. I love horses and love spending my time with them, especially my baby Sauney<3!

Wow! This is soo cool. I love horses too! I have a horse, his name is Tony. He is a palamino rocky mountain horse. This makes me want to volunteer and do something with horses.

Im so glad you did a horse-related post! im a horseback rider, i do jumping. A lot of people dont consider is a sport, but hello- its in the olympics. also, i have to say, ITS WAY HARDER THAN SOCCER, FOOTBALL, BASEBALL, ETC. the basbeall, soccer ball, or basketball cant kill you. a baseball doesnt have to option to buck you off onto the ground. a basketball doesnt know how to trot walk or canter. Riding a horse is controlling it as well as competing in a sport. YOU make the horse trot. YOU have to get the horse to canter. I fell off last tuesday because i didnt help guide the horse over a jump, so she swerved it and i got a mouthful of dirt. think its easy still? nopeee.

I'm really glad GL did a job feature/interview on a career with horses. I absolutely love horses! They are my favorite animal. I've always wanted to have my own horse and work with them in the future. This gives me more ideas of other jobs with these magnificent animals. Thank you GL!
