Life changing opportunities

Developing Life Skills & Aspirations

A safe positive place to belong

At Ebony Horse Club we use horses to improve the education, life skills and aspirations of disadvantaged young people, growing up in Brixton, South London. We teach riding and horse care, take groups to outdoor events, in and outside of London, 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."

Update from Trustees

After twelve years during which Ros Spearing has been instrumental in setting up Ebony Horse Club from its inception, the Trustees agreed that a change of management structure is now required. Accordingly, Ros has chosen not to be part of this new structure and left the club on 22 August 2014. A passionate visionary, Ros has created a community riding centre in an inner city neighbourhood which provides innovative programmes for individual children and significantly enhances the lives of many young people: it is the intention of the Trustees to hold fast to this vision. The Trustees are hugely grateful to Ros for her hard work and commitment and wish her well for her future.
