My daughter is an equestrian instructor. Couldn't find a job in NY where she lives. Does subbing and more and more her income depends on teaching students how to ride. Horses are her life and she recently told me that this job is a great way to enjoy both of her life interests - horses and education. She works with several special needs kids, kids with autism, etc. for whom horseback riding is actually a form of therapy. Are college positions just as hard to obtain?
