Weʼre raising £150,000 to help purchase a horse trailer, horse and care for the horse for one year
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 new social enterprise. Our aim is to raise funds for a horse trailer, the purchase of a horse and costs for caring for the horse for a year.
This helps with cost and accessibility when connecting with the Equestrian world. Our social enterprise aims to open doors that have not been visibly present before in the Equestrian world. Our ethos is focused on widening the 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 BEM communities. One of the main barriers to accessing equestrianism for these particular groups is cost, transport and accessibility. In crowdfunding for a community minibus 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.

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.
