Fletcher Street Urban Riding Club
"Fletcher Street Urban Riding Club is not just about horses; it's about building a community,
fostering resilience, and providing a unique space for growth and connection."
The Fletcher Street Urban Riding Club, based in Philadelphia, has gained recognition for its unique approach to community building through horseback riding and equestrian activities. A non-profit organization devoted to inner-city horsemanship in North Philadelphia, Fletcher Street is part of a century-long tradition of black cowboys and horsemanship in the region. Local horsemen maintain and care for horses and teach neighborhood youth to do so. They encourage academic excellence and provide positive ways for local youth to spend their leisure time outdoors.
