I have had the privilege of talking with so many women from all over the country and I now realize that most women experience these same thoughts, feelings and struggles sometime during their business career. They have this passion and love for horses and turn it into a career but the career became much more challenging in so many ways. Becoming a professional horsewoman and making a living in the horse industry is a dream come true for many women but it can wear you down and burn you out easily if you are not prepared. I know this from first-hand experience. Not only is it a very physical and mental career but it is so unique in itself because you are working with horses that need care seven days a week, every day of the year. Then you add in the clients and you have a career that will have its own unique set of circumstances and rules.
Tugging at my heart
Over the last two years, my heart has been leading me to write my new book, "One Horsewoman to Another." I knew it was going to be emotional for me but I also wanted it to be a book about perseverance, courage and hope for the woman that you are and the equine professional inside of you. This book is unlike any book you will ever read in the horse world. This book is for you ladies. It was written to encourage you and have you reach deep inside yourself to find out what is really important in life and your horse business. It is about the journey we all take as businesswomen and equine professionals and finding out what works best for you and gaining confidence through all of it.
Remember that you are a woman with so much to offer. You give depth to business ownership that will make your business incredibly special. Don't underestimate all that you bring to your barn and the horses and clients in your care.
This book was written because I want you to know that you are not alone. I want you to be successful in your horse business but not if it means losing yourself or all that is important to you in the process. I believe as women, we can have it all but we just need to find a balance in all of it.
My new book, "One Horsewoman to Another," has just been published and I encourage you to get a copy. This book will uplift you and get you to start looking at yourself in a new way. You are on an incredible journey and you are incredible for even taking a chance. Today I celebrate the horsewoman you have become! Christmas is right around the corner...Give the gift of encouragement this year to the horsewoman in your life.
Wishing you many blessings in your horse business,
