My situation is I have grown up around horses and competed in every discipline, from driving, to eventing, to gymkhanas, to polo, etc. One would say I am very experienced around horses, and have just seen a lot, and provided a lot of care to sick horses over the past 19 years. I want to become a equine vet, horses are my number 1 interest. Would you recommend I volunteer at an equine hospital, or should I diversify and volunteer at a small animal clinic, where I could benefit from learning how to hold and care for a cat or hamster? My small animal experience is good but limited, much beyond dogs, I have a lot to learn. Would seeing this side of veterinary medicine make my application stronger, or should I follow my passion?
