An equestrian centre with a difference
Not only are we open 7 days a week to provide high quality riding lessons to both children and adults; we also operate as a charity providing opportunities for children and young people growing up in challenging situations to grow their confidence, develop their resilience and gain qualifications and experience that will enrich their lives.
The family atmosphere and customer care centred approach make us the ideal choice for both adults and children learning to ride.
As well as being a riding school providing high quality riding instruction on well-mannered, well-schooled horses, Stepney Bank Stables is a children and young people’s Project (Charity no. 1084687) which has been a vital element of the Byker community for over 20 years. During that time we have supported thousands of young people enabling them to develop important life skills including confidence, self-esteem, resilience, listening, cooperation and teamwork. Income from the riding school is fundamental in sustaining the Project.
Stepney Bank Stables is approved by the British Horse Society and the Association of British Riding Schools. This means that we have passed rigorous checks to ensure that our horses, facilities and equipment are fit for purpose and that our staff are appropriately qualified and skilled. Come and ride with us and help to support our young people too.
