Work To Ride: Equestrian Program for Inner-City Youth in Philadelphia

Philadelphia, PA – Nestled in Philadelphia's Fairmount Park, the Chamounix Stables is the setting of a unique equestrian center.

"Work to Ride" was created in 1994 to provide disadvantaged youth with the opportunity to connect with animals and nature.
