    Education is only free until you're 19, after that you have to pay.

    I highly recommend "college" for you.

    Hi heather

    Has the person who told you that you should do further study given you any information about how to go about it? As others have said, education is only free either until the age of 19 or until you start Higher Education (university), there are some other exceptions.

    There might be bursaries available for the courses you want to do, it doesn't have to be expensive.

    UCAS (the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service) lists the equine-related courses run in the UK at universities.

    I'm aware you're having a bad day but that was a lazy and an unprovoked jab and I think you know it.

    Just to add to this, if you go on the website for the college that you are interested at studying in there will be a section about financial support. I'm pretty sure most if not all colleges offer a bursary for people 19+ who are experiencing financial hardship. Some colleges will also help out with your food by giving you free meals/access to tinned food to take home or vouchers.

    If you're on JSA/ESA, housing benefit, or any other sort of benefit, they should let you in for free.

    Already been commented on and Shikari has since given some good advice. No need to bring it up again.

    If someone was large, you'd recommend them a diet.
    If someone is uneducated, you'd recommend them a school. ><
    Apparently you can't do that here.

    I didn't say you couldn't did I? I just said that it was out of order to correct somebody in such a harsh way.. That's all, can't be good for the persons self esteem really.
