Opportunity for youth facing challenges to learn horsemanship and riding skills, while at the same time learning to engage and connect with themselves and others. Since Urban Stable was founded in 2001, we have helped over 600 youth in our programs to help unbridle their potential at school, home and in their communities.
Our experiential learning horsemanship and riding programs offer social development for Grade 5-12 students – through referral by their school – which promotes competence in horsemanship, riding, social skills, teamwork, and leadership.
We use horses because they are feeling creatures, with survival instincts, and a great sensitivity to their environment. From the moment a student approaches a horse a conversation begins.
Our horses offer a unique form of experiential learning as students participate in equine activities. The stability of the programs’ routine, and the consistency, empathy, genuineness, clear communication and leadership of the horse, facilitates the development of life skills.
Urban Stable looks to enrich young learners by engaging and empowering them to face life’s challenges in a safe, caring, and supportive environment that provides the opportunity for youth to unbridle their potential.
