HI Spy: What's Your Horsey Dream Job?

If you could have any job, real or imagined, in the horse industry, what would it be?

Have you ever caught yourself daydreaming at work or school, imagining an existence where you get paid to work with horses every day? Few horse lovers have not at least considered the possibility of turning their passion for horses into a lifelong career.

Would you give up everything tomorrow if you could become a professional rider? Do you dream of taking young, green horses and shaping them into show-ring superstars or reliable family companions? Do you aspire to share your skill with horses as a riding instructor? Can you see yourself saving horses' lives and careers as an equine vet?

Maybe the daily horse world grind doesn't appeal to you. But imagine if you could create your own dream job. Would you spend all day guiding trail rides along Mediterranean beaches? Or become head carrot-feeder for the horses of the United States Equestrian Team? Or work as interior designer for Martha Stewart's stable of Friesian horses?

Finally, if you've already landed your dream job in the horse world, share your story. Is it everything you hoped it would be? Are you working your way toward another horse industry career?

A dream horse job would be as the Hired Horse Lover! Who wouldn't want to do that?

My dream job would be a professional rider. But because practically there is not really any jobs like that in my area, I am considering becoming a holistic veterinarian (specializing in nutrition). That way I can still work with(and hopefully ride) horses and also help other animals.

I would love to work and train with underprivaliged kids that don't know or understand love what love it, because horses have given me healing that a person could never give me. I want to give kids the opprotunity to love and be loved back.
