We are delighted to announce we are Marks & Spencers Newcastle branch, Chosen charity of the Year

Stepney Bank Stables - enhancing lives through horses. We are a unique equestrian centre situated in the heart of Newcastle upon Tyne. Our superb team of qualified instructors and well mannered horses provide horse riding lessons ranging from beginner to advanced.  

Stepney Bank Stables is 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 (Reg. charity no. 1084687) 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 centre has both indoor and outdoor riding arenas allowing year round equestrian activities. The family atmosphere and customer care centred approach make us the ideal choice for both adults and children learning to ride.  BOOK NOW!

Mission statement:
Stepney Bank Stables is committed to making horses and riding accessible to the whole community. We offer opportunities to volunteers of all ages to develop in confidence and skills whilst helping others.
Our Values:
We provide outstanding equestrian training. Commercial riding lessons provide the focus for all other activities and enable us to support those most in need.  We pride ourselves in offering excellence and a safe and engaging learning experience.

We engage with vulnerable young people and adults, raising their aspirations and helping them to feel positively about themselves and their futures.

By choosing to ride with us you can not only have a fantastic time, learn valuable skills whilst keeping fit but you will also be helping local disadvantaged young people.

Stepney Bank Stables is approved by the British Horse Society and the Association of British Riding Schools. We are also a Pony Club Centre. 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.

Stepney Bank Stables was honoured by 'Her Majesty The Queen' with the Queen's Golden Jubilee Award 2003. We have also been awarded Investing in Children Membership as a result of our continued commitment to involving young people in the planning and delivery of our work and were winners at the Charity Awards receiving a Judges Commendation for our work with children and young people in 2014.
