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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.

We can hardly believe it, Urban Stable has been helping youth unbridle their potential for 20 years! Co-founded in 2001 by Wendy MacDonald, Urban Stable grew from a desire to provide much needed support and programming for middle years students. Working with Winnipeg youth in social services, Wendy witnessed a lack of programming available for the youth she worked with and came upon the opportunity to experience the incredible positive impact being around horses had on one of the clients she su[...]
