Episode 117: Welcome to the Equestrian Author Spotlight podcast! In each episode, you’ll hear inspirational stories from horse book authors, including writing advice and marketing tips to help you write your own horse book. If you are an author, aspire to be an author, or simply love horse books, then you are in the right place!
In this episode, you'll meet Mary S. Corning. Mary changes lives by defining the transformative power of pain. As a mentor, speaker, life consultant and writer, she clearly and compassionately models this process through her messages and stories.
Mary extends her philosophy into her world of horses, where both people and horses benefit from realizing a different way to interpret challenges. Great teachers have offered support and blessings that caused a shift in her perception. That shift, in turn, changed her world.
Saddle up for a conversation about how Mary navigated through addiction and codependency, the way her education in life expanded when she met her teacher Ray Hunt, and how we can all learn that we are enough.

About Mary S. Corning
Mary Corning lives in the foothills of the Oregon Coast Range Mountains. She is an author, consultant, horse advocate, mentor and retreat facilitator. Mary enjoys a diverse yet simple and natural lifestyle. Falling in love in 2012, she became a wife and (step) mom.
Through her book and her practice Mary focuses on real life experience. Her work is based on experiential practice rather than intellectual belief. Mary encourages personal inquiry as a means to uncover hidden patterns. Removing resistance and finding freedom of expression is a cornerstone in Mary’s work. The application for this life-enhancing work is delivered in many varied environments, such as private personal sessions, horse sessions, personal retreats, group seminars and workshops.
Mary is an award-winning author, published journalist and dedicated practitioner. She has been interviewed on radio and podcasts and enjoys candid and authentic discussions. Mary’s book Perfect Practice won the Winnie award for ‘Most Inspirational’ at the December, 2022 Equus Film, Art and Literature Festival.
As a self-created business woman her entire adult life, Mary built and maintained her own horse facility where she hosted clinics, boarded horses and taught horsemanship for 20 years. She then extended her work into human wellness early in the year 2000, when she began offering private sessions and retreats.
Mary considers herself a student of the soul. Her passion and inspiration has always come from living close to nature and with her horses.
