Ebony Horse Club

Ebony Horse Club

It may not be a high-octane competition yard, but rarely has a riding school made as many headlines as the Ebony Horse Club.

Dodson & Horrell are delighted to supply feed and to be involved with this special organisation, which uses horses to improve the education, life skills and aspirations of young people growing up in Brixton, South London.

The club teaches riding and horse care, takes groups to outdoor events in and outside London, and mentors children experiencing significant challenges in their everyday life.

In 2011, thanks to a £1.75million fundraising effort, Ebony opened its own riding school in Brixton - previously, the club had relied on other riding establishments, transporting children around and outside the capital once a week for lessons.  Eight stables and a 20 X 40 arena now grace a two-acre plot of land between tower blocks and a railway line in Brixton and the club is thriving under the direction of Manager, Ros Spearing.
