“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.
