Ride with Us
At Ebony Horse Club we are committed to supporting the local community and that is why all our riders come from the area around our centre in Brixton. We provide riding lessons and youth work support to young people from the age of 8 to 18 and our priority is to work with those young people who are most in need of our work. If you are a young person who would like to horse ride with us or know someone who would, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to see if we can get you in the saddle soon.

We are a small charity and rely almost totally on grants and donations to be able to run our riding centre and youth work and our generous donors help us make a difference to over 1,000 young people every year. Your donation could help us in the following ways:
- £5,000 would sponsor a school group to ride for a whole year
- £300 would pay for a riding trip away from London for a our young riders
- £100 would cover the costs of hay to feed our hard working horses for a week
However big or small your donation we would be delighted to showcase our work to you, have you meet some of our young riders and show you just how you are helping us make a difference.
