Just a bit of a different idea for you. I took a course at The National Stud in Newmarket, United Kingdom, this year on Breeding and Stallion Management. It was a brilliant course and I really learnt a lot! It's a 5 month course. They also do an apprenticeship program in the Fall for a few months, the recognition of this course it noted anywhere in the Thoroughbred world and it will increase your chances of employment anywhere in the world!
It is a great opportunity if you wish to travel. It's a bit off topic from being a Jockey but it could really take you places :)
Feel free to ask me questions or take a look on their website!
