Some people make better jockeys and some people make better trainers. What would you racing job be if you worked at a racehorse stable?
You May Get
Being a jockey is a lot of hard work and it is very dangerous – but you seem to be the perfect person to do it! This job comes with the glitz and glamour of becoming famous if you can guide a good racehorse to victory. You’ve got to have riding talent, a great reputation, and a little luck.
Your dedication and riding talent make you the perfect racehorse trainer! Trainers start riding racehorses early and teach them how to walk, trot, canter, and most importantly, gallop! You spend a lot of your time with a specific horse and work under the direction of its owner.
Your leadership qualities make you the best match for a racehorse’s owner. This job is for you if you are not only interested in horses, but also in business and finance. Being an owner also has its risks, however, because the only way to get rich and famous is to be the owner of a champion!
If you are caring and dedicated, you’d make an excellent groomer! As a groom, you spend your entire time taking care
of a racehorse and travel with it to races. You don’t get to ride as often as the trainer or jockey, but you do spend the most time out of everyone with the horse.
Breeders are in charge of taking talented thoroughbred stallions and mare and pairing them up to produce the best offspring that will be sold to owners. You’ll need to know the scientific aspects of horse breeding to figure out which horses will make the best pairs. The best part? You get to work with foals!
