Life changing opportunities

Developing Life Skills & Aspirations

A safe positive place to belong

At Ebony Horse Club we use horses to raise the education, life skills, well-being and aspirations of young people growing up in some of the most disadvantaged communities in south London. We teach riding and horse care, take groups to outdoor events and on residential trips, and mentor children experiencing significant challenges in their everyday lives.

Our Stories

Building lifetime memories

"I remember seeing the stables being built from the balcony where I live, so I came down and found out how I could learn to ride. It's changed the way I feel about life."
