Read more about the Riding Camp 

Work To Ride programs and activities are designed to explore new ways of engaging youth in significant educational, social and cultural experiences that are otherwise unavailable. The youth build relationships and develop problem-solving skills through spirited teamwork and cooperation. Activities at the stables as well as during competitions and trips allow participants to interact with diverse people and to be exposed to a variety of new experiences. 

Work to Ride Program & History

The WTR program is free to low income inner city at risk youth in Philadelphia. Keeping horses and associated costs places a large burden on our budget and our fund-raising efforts. Your donation will make a difference. Each year Work to Ride holds its annual Work to Ride Fundraiser.  Thank you!
