What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


The Urban Equestrian Academy is a groundbreaking social enterprise. Our specialist equine programmes provide the perfect gateway for young and old to experience the world of equestrianism in Leicester and the UK. We are raising £150,000 to help continue to deliver our specialist equestrian projects to urban communities

We aim to defeat social exclusion and open doors that have not been visibly present before in the equestrian world. Our ethos is focused on widening participation of those with the least experience in the equestrian world and also individuals who have the least access to it.

Our services are especially beneficial to inner-city children, faith groups, specialist organisations and specific communities such as BAME communities.

One of the main barriers to accessing equestrianism for these particular groups is cost, transport and accessibility.

We aim to overcome these particular accessibility barriers, and continue to widen the participation in Leicester and Leicestershire by allowing us to provide and expand on our key services and find innovative and new ways to keep our community active and inspired.

Your donation will directly help us:

- Continue to develop and deliver our riding services in Leicester with the addition of more programmes to reach the wider community.

- Purchase a 2nd minibus to enable more young people to access our programmes/ services and projects

- Expand equestrian opportunities for ethnic minorities and urban communities throughout the UK by replicating our methods, philosophy and principles in other cities (Social Franchising)

- Secure a land base to build our own Academy Centre enabling us to offer all of our services within one central community hub.

      Saw Urban Equestrian in The Week magazine. I'm a former inner-city kid so I know how much of a difference initiatives like this can make. Keep it up.
