Chamounix Equestrian Center
Chamounix Equestrian Center (formerly McCarthy Stable) was built in 1973 to house the then burgeoning mounted police force that patrolled the parks and streets of Philadelphia. In 1994 Work to Ride moved in as a fledgling non profit to serve at risk youth as well as provide affordable equine related programming to the community at large. Located on 3.5 acres and 1,400 acres of woodland and open space, CEC is a Fairmount Park treasure.
CEC offers programming all year round with a focus on beginning and intermediate riders. Our foundation philosophy is focused on the horse human relationship. Chamounix Equestrian Center is home to several wonderful programs that promote horsemanship and learning. A multi faceted facility, CEC offers a wide variety of programs: Riding Lessons, Summer Camp, Boarding, Work To Ride program , Equine Assisted Psychotherapy and Discovery Day programs. We have knowledgeable and conscientious staff to care for your horse. Our facility includes a 35 stall barn and offers riding lessons, summer camp, Discovery Day and the renowned Work to Ride program.
Work to Ride is a registered non profit in the state of Pennsylvania.
