There are almost more than seven million horses in America. This includes horses used for recreation, showing, racing, breeding, farming, ranching, rodeo, polo and police work. Studies show that the horse industry is growing and with almost 6.9 million horses alive - that places the horse industry higher than transportation and motion picture services (Hogue-Davies, 2004.) Therefore, the horse industry offers a wide range of career opportunities. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, jobs in horse-related fields are growing and equine graduates are in high demand.
