Stepney Bank Stables offer several sessions specifically for young people 

8-11 Equestrian and activity club

The 8-11 equestrian and activity club is part funded by the Big Lottery so we are able to offer 2 free sessions per month to each young person which and allows all participants’ access to horses and with regular attendance the young people can work towards achieving ABRS rosette awards and occasionally have a lessons if there is funding. The aim of this social development project is to provide young people with an opportunity to develop self-confidence, communication and interpersonal skills using the horses as the key tool. Young people will learn about basic horse care as well as their own social development, a variety of workshops and sessions around life skills such as cooking, healthy eating and hygiene are often ran within these sessions. The sessions run on Mondays and Fridays from 5pm until 7pm and on Saturdays from 1pm to 3pm. Advanced booking is required by contacting us on 0191 2615544 additional sessions are £10 per session.

12-18’s Equestrian and Activity Club

Being a part of the 12-18s Equestrian and Activity Club means getting involved! We value our young people hugely and try to instil values of commitment and responsibility and opportunities to earn leader credit. We do this by encouraging our young people to help with the horses, complete general yard tasks and support our beginner riders! This is a fantastic way to gain work experience, make new friends and have fun. Our 12-18s can also get involved in a packed schedule of social events such as team building activities, sleepovers, parties, pizza nights, cooking nights, trips out, summer camp. We also provide issue-based, age appropriate drop in sessions. These sessions include workshops around stress, relationships, drugs & alcohol and online safety. The young people have to initially take part in the free 6 week training (2hrs per week) to ensure they understand about being safe on yard. Please contact for more information. These training sessions run on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5pm-7pm and on Saturdays and Sundays 9.30-11.30pm. For young people who are not interested in joining our Club we will offer a free membership which will allow them to access cheaper lessons.
