Help Urban Stable this Holiday Season!
The connection between humans and horses is powerful. Urban Stable provides youth in Winnipeg the opportunity – and for some their only chance – to connect with horses through a unique equine program. From timid to talkative; from unsure to confident; the transformation in participants is remarkable and often evident after the first few hours in the barn. For 15 years Urban Stable (formerly The Horse Connection) has provided this powerful experience for students in Grades 5–9 to help them overcome stress and isolation from not fitting in at school or not succeeding academically. A donation to Urban Stable (a Registered Canadian Charity) can give youth confidence and a sense of responsibility as they learn to ride and care for their horse during a 12-week program. For the Holiday Season consider this: any amount, large or small, will positively impact the lives of youth in Winnipeg. Your donation to Urban Stable can make a big difference in the lives of youth struggling to find their way. Please donate today and forward this message to your friends and family.
