Looking to Connect with Empowered By Horses and Friends? 


Here are some ways to partner with us to learn more about Nature-based/Animal-Assisted and Equine Facilitated Wellness

  1. Practicum: You are looking for a practicum location to conduct the required hours for your university degree or college certification in the mental health field. Team member Kirsten Hargreaves, RCC, is the lead contact for this and can be reached at info@standingtallcounselling.com Please ensure your university will allow you to count hours partnering with animals. If you have limited experience with animals you will be required to participate in a 2-day EBH course preparing you to partner with animals.
  2. Working Intern: You are interested in the field of animal and nature-assisted services and/or looking to deepen your understanding of the work. Hands-on skills in learning about animal psychology and specific behaviors will be a focus along with general animal husbandry. Working interns live on site for 3 month intervals with potential for longer. There is a small fee ($250/mo) to cover your room and board. Contact Carla Webb to apply carla@empoweredbyhorses.com 
  3. Volunteer: You are interested in connecting weekly with the farm for 2-4 hours and are looking to spend time in nature, learn valuable skills and become more physically fit. Most volunteer positions are around animal care, cleaning and feeding. We are also interested in volunteers looking to contribute with writing and/or have social media and website skills. Please contact Lindsay for such opportunities lindsay@nurturebynaturetherapy.com. * Please note for confidentiality reasons we cannot at this time have clients attend to volunteer. 
  4. Barn Chores: We have one paid position, 4 hours/da, 4 days/week, for one individual who is searching for part-time employment and who wants to be in a positive, peaceful, community centered environment. Caring for animals/horses is required along with references. The candidate will be a team player, hard worker, kind and able to put animal welfare at the top. We may not have an opening at this time but we would like to connect with those who are interested. Contact carla@empoweredbyhorses.com
