I’m Corina Huylebroeck. Graduated as a nurse’s apprentice. A job I really enjoyed doing.
Unfortunately, back problems put an end to that.
When I got married I thought it was forever, unfortunately, my marriage didn’t last. There I was, with my 2 daughters who are now 15 and 18, 8 years ago all alone. Luckily I had my family and friends to turn to, they were my rescuers. As soon as I got rid of the victim’s chair, thanks to my perseverance, I was able to get back on my feet.
In the beginning it was very difficult for me, a lot of questions but without answers, what now? How to proceed,both with myself and with my children. My life just took its course and I just wa
lked along, until I came to the conclusion that I couldn’t let go of the challenges of that moment, I had to and would find a solution, and that was a new start for me. I looked for the solutions or people who could help me and started to get rid of all the challenges, one easier and quicker than the other. I had to and would come out of this stronger. It went by trial and error and I shed some tears but I did it, I got through it and I came out strong. I had my 2 daughters who had a lot of questions, sadness and pain and who I had to take care of, for them I had to be there. They are now my dearest treasures and they too have grown into very beautiful, independent young ladies.
When my eldest daughter started riding, something I would have liked to do as a child but never got the chance, I was a bit skeptical at first but after a while I was also completely in her enthusiasm of the horses. Also the youngest one started to ride and then it started to tickle again and yes, I also learned to ride. Another step of perseverance. Only for me riding wasn’t completely what I felt it should be like.
I wanted more!
I came to Petra after a fall of my horse and I had a fracture in one of my vertebrae, I must say I was scared, but again I would go on and ride my horse again. After a long time of doubt and fear I took the step, I got back on my horse and we started riding again, again a challenge I had overcome. I thought it was great that I was able to regain the bond with my horse and even improve it.
I did, I was so happy to ride my own horse again.
Because of Petra I also discovered a totally different way of looking at the horses and that was the sign for me that I had to get more out of this than what I did so far
I searched the internet for training courses of which I wanted more information and I wanted to taste, hear, see, feel what they had to offer.
I found a number of things that fell off after the information or they were training courses that I wanted to do but were not financially feasible for me.
Gradually I started to put my plans away until I got back to the same point with my career counsellor, and that was that in the job I’m doing now I want to turn into a job of mine together with my horses. That’s what I want to do!
When I heard about the R-to-B coaching course I was very interested.
The info about the course coincided with my mom’s birthday, she unfortunately passed away but I know she is always with me and watches over me and my daughters. After the info I was so excited when I came home and when a nice sign for me came from my mom I was ready and sure of my choice. This time it wouldn’t stop me and I would persevere and go for it with full conviction. And so I did. So I started the training and haven’t regretted it for a moment yet. You learn the right methodology. You learn whole new things. You learn confidence in yourself, the horses and as a coach. Every session you do is very valuable and you learn something different every time.
You also learn to persevere because the horses show you that what you want to achieve is worth the effort and that it is achievable. You just have to persevere and every session is a step in the right direction of your goal.
In the meantime I have given a number of sessions and every time I come to the conclusion that this is what I want to do.
Giving people the opportunity to tackle their challenges with the guidance of my horses and myself.
Showing people what can be possible if they really want it, if they persevere.
Believe me when I say that because of my perseverance and the horses and the training I am now completely sure that this is my goal and I am super excited that I can and may do this.
The feeling that I get when I hear after a session that the person in question got more clarity and see them leave with a smile on their face, that has given me so much satisfaction.
That makes my day all right and that has confirmed to me every time that this is my goal.
It makes me happy and that is good for myself and my daughters, yes even for my whole family and friends.
Don’t give up…
