Urban Stable needs to find a new home where we can open our doors to help more youth unbridle their potential through our equine experiential learning program. We are interested in leasing or lease-to-own opportunities. If you or anyone you know has a horse barn and riding arena property that might suit our needs, contact email@example.com and we can explore together if a leasing opportunity could benefit both parties.
Help keep our students In the Saddle. Every donation, no matter how big or how small, goes towards the cost and care of Urban Stable’s program horses and the sustainability of our equine experiential learning programs.
“My horse helped me overcome my fears, to relax and not worry.”
Todd, Student Aged 12
“The horses helped me to see the small movements and become more detail orientated.”
Audrey, Team Building Workshop Participant
Growing up can be tough. Youth can experience stress and isolation at school from not belonging to the popular cliques or feeling unsuccessful in classes. At Urban Stable we help youth to overcome challenges and develop life skills to re-engage with themselves, their education and community.
Working in a team is fun, sharing ideas, reaching goals, but sometimes teams struggle with misunderstandings, impatience, and conflicts. This can cause in increase in stress and productivity suffers. Our Leadership Development sessions can address these common workplace challenges and get your team working together cohesively, reduce stress and help your team achieve their goals.

"I ride the horse May. I like her because when we ride we're really in sync and she follows my directions. May is energetic and sometimes moves around a lot when I groom her, but when we are in the arena she's in the zone and follows my directions. We are a great team.
