Sometimes We Are Called…
“Sometimes we are called trainers, but we are more than that.” – Janet Cawley
“There is a difference between a trainer and a mentor. A trainer teaches you how to ride and a mentor teaches you how to be a horsewoman. A mentor is someone you call for their endless equine medical advice. Someone you go to for a pep talk when you’ve lost your confidence. Someone who cries with you when your horse has died. Someone who encourages you to trust your gut. Someone whose kindness and understanding of both horse and human is something you strive to emulate. Someone who is honest without being cruel. Someone who pushes you towards scary goals because they believe in you more than you believe in yourself. Someone who respects you as a peer while knowing more about horses than you could ever dream of.” – Megan Corbett
