Ebony Horse Club is a community riding centre using horses to help
improve the life skills, education and aspirations of children and young
people growing up in the Coldharbour area of Brixton, South London -
an area of severe deprivation where 38% of children grow up in poverty.
We are enabling children and young people of all backgrounds to have
the opportunity to benefit from the positive impact horses can have
on people's lives - from the sense of achievement and confidence that
comes from learning to ride, to the special bond that forms between
horse and rider.
At our purpose built centre, we provide riding lessons and horse care,
outdoor activities and mentoring to local young people, many of whom
experience significant challenges in living and going to school in a
very urban enviroment. We provide riding and stable management for all
children in the community , making sure that children with special needs
and disabilities are included in all activities along side their peers.
