Stepney Bank - News from the Project
Stepney Bank Stables have been having a great year so far and have been up to some really exciting things!
13 young people from their Scholarship Programme completed their BHS Riding and Road Safety exam with a 100% pass rate! The training and certificate is real asset to their young people, as they are an inner-city project they have to deal with traffic, horses and the associated challenges regularly! It was a great achievement for each individual, some of whom struggle to achieve academically within school and have very low self-esteem.
They ran a dressage competition recently which had a great turn out and saw lots of children and young people take part in their first ever dressage test!
They've also been having a go at Equestrian Vaulting with Equibuddy which has been great fun!
