In the fall of 2019 I moved to Anam Cara Farm and Learning Center to start a Mentorship with owner and founder of Empowered by Horses, Carla Webb. I had been following Carla’s story for quite some time and felt a strong draw to be a part of her mission to bring heart-centered leadership in partnership with the animals to the therapeutic world. I pursued a mentorship with Carla and the animals she cares for because I saw something in her work I had been in search of for a very long time. Carla embodies exactly what she teaches. Through her diverse background as an accomplished horsewoman, policewoman, EFL facilitator and teacher, she brings a unique and thoughtful perspective to animal partnership. I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Carla and her herd this last year and the trust and connection between them signifies the many hours she has spent learning and putting her own teachings into practice. Carla’s teachings encourage us to join our animal partners in the process of slowing down in order to receive the many lessons they offer us as humans. She incorporates the study of animal psychology and behavior, exploring our own patterns, while paying close attention to how our interactions with animals carry into our own personal lives. All of these relational pieces help support us in building healthy interpersonal relationships in our everyday lives and a strong connection to the natural world. I am grateful for the opportunity to continue to work alongside Carla Webb and the Anam Cara herd to learn and grow with them.
