Photo Essays: Ebony Horsewomen Equestrian Day Camp
Horses evoke the vast West, the open plain, the smell of freshly-cut hay. Not typically the type of imagery that we associate with inner-city Hartford. Yet tucked away in the urban greenery of Keney Park, sits an equestrian and agricultural center where Hartford kids can don cowboy hats and learn horseback riding and animal care. The Ebony Horsewomen (the only equestrian organization in the country founded and operated by African-American women) Equestrian Day Camp offers an opportunity for Hartford kids to befriend these powerful, elegant animals.
