Humble is an after-school equestrian program that immerses underprivileged communities in all aspects of ranch life from riding and horse socialization, to husbandry and barn maintenance. We work with our students to create a foundation of confidence around the stable, on horseback, and in everyday life.
leveling An Unequal Playing Field
Today, people from underserved communities––predominantly children of color––have limited access to enrichment programs in natural environments.
Due to high costs and limited accessibility, the motivational and therapeutic qualities of horses are often out of reach.
Children from low-income families are 3x less likely to participate in after-school programs.
Children consistently involved in extracurriculars are 400% more likely to go to college than kids who cannot access these programs.
76% of inhabitants in low-income and non-white communities are living in a nature-deprived area.
Adolescents involved in equine learning have fewer disciplinary problems, and their prosocial behavior is about 4x better than those who are not.
humble in the city
Humble in the City brings horses directly to the community in nature-deprived, urban areas. These one-day events ignite curiosity and appreciation for nature and highlight the importance of civic engagement.
humble on the ranch
We believe we are stronger together. Humble partners with community based organizations to empower, enrich, inspire, and provide agricultural, and mounted and dismounted equine experiential learning opportunities.

Intro to Horse Open Class Any age + Family
We foster interspecies bonds, inspire curiosity in animals and the outdoors, and connect through equine experiential learning. Students learn to touch, groom and interact with a horse, then hop on for a pony ride. This class is appropriate for those who have never touched or ridden a horse before.
