Urban Stable

Urban Stable works in partnership with public schools to provide equine experiential learning and horsemanship programs to youth grades 5-12 in Winnipeg and the surrounding area. Urban Stable was founded in 2001 and is a registered charity. Our centre is accredited and our instructors are certified through the Canadian Theraputic Riding Association (CanTRA). 

Our experiential riding programs offer students who are facing challenges the opportunity to learn horsemanship, grooming and riding skills, while at the same time teaching them to engage with others and connect with themselves.

The horses are the real teachers and offer a unique form of experiential learning. From the moment a student approaches a horse, a conversation begins. Through interaction with their horse, students develop trust and respect, consistency, empathy, authenticity, clear communication and leadership. Our program focuses on the development of life skills, which are naturally facilitated through the students' participation in the program and their connection with their horse and peers.

Our Mission is to provide an educational horseback riding program together with public schools that empowers students to stay connected with their education.
