Any school of veterinary medicine will give you the basics towards becoming an equine veterinarian; if the school doesn't have a strong equine program there you can supplement your time in vet school with externships and experiences at other schools or at private equine facilities. Once you get out of vet school, the important thing is to work with a good established equine veterinarian to hone your technical skills.

In the US, it takes a minimum of seven years of school after high school - three years to complete the undergraduate pre-requisite courses and another four years to complete vet school. However, most vet school applicants complete four years of undergraduate and have a Bachelor's degree. Also, if you want to specialize in equine medicine, you will have more job opportunities if you complete a one year equine medicine internship after vet school and…
A vet can technically treat any animal but they may choose to specialize in one species. An equine vet specializes in equines (horses, ponies and donkeys) but can treat other animals if they choose to. My equine vet has also treated our cows and goats mainly as a favor to me, and I know that he treats his own dogs unless they require specialist care
Science. Such as Biology, chemistry and physics. And equine studies if it's available. Also, Anatomy, zoogogy (if avaliable) and anything else animal related. Some people go into college wanting to be an equine vet but come out a regular vet in general, so its always good to keep all your options open.
In undergraduate college, you should focus on taking science and math classes, as well as a broad selection of gen-ed classes. This will help you get into vet school - in the United States of America, having a strong science background in undergraduate is a prerequisite of applying for vet school. In vet school, you can and should take as many equine-focused electives as you can, or you can sign up for the equine track…
It takes at least 7 years to become a veterinarian - at least three years of undergraduate (most successful vet school applicants have completed four or more years) then four years of vet school. Some equine vets will specialize or receive additional training specific to horses. An equine internship is one extra year, an equine residency is 3 years, a PhD related to equine medicine can take up to 7 years to complete.
Currently the job outlook for equine veterinarians is fair - there are fewer horse owners who can afford less medical care for their animals due to the Great Recession. However, horse racing and other equine sports are still very popular and most horse owners can and will pay for proper medical care. The most challenging part is that an equine vet makes most of his pay working for loyal clients - without a dedicated client…
What any vet or equine specialist makes depends on the location of their practice, if they have partners and other factors. I do know from experience that I payed an equine chiropractor 75 dollars for 15 minutes. This was a few years ago so I don't know what the rate is today. I think you can find a chiropractor in your area from your vet or look at the yellow pages online.
