Unbridling Youth Potential

Leadership Development

“My horse helped me overcome my fears, to relax and not worry.”
Student Aged 12 
“The horses helped me to see the small movements and become more detail orientated.” Audrey

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.
