Connecting Vancouver's youth with the healing power of horses

Urban Horse Project

Funded since 2017

Urban Horse Project is bringing the power of connecting with horses to youth in programs new to metro Vancouver. Through experiential learning with horses as teachers, youth are able to build confidence, develop life skills, overcome challenges and create great memories.

Why we fund Urban Horse Project 

Urban Horse Project is unexpected—and we like unexpected. The organization brings diverse urban youth together with horses—not to ride, but to connect and develop. Research shows that it’s a powerful approach to supporting well-being. It’s one of the most unique ways in which Power to Give invests in helping young people thrive.
