Founded in 1984

Ebony Horsewomen was founded by Patricia Kelly in 1984. This was the first African-American female equestrian organization of its kind in America. The organization is a full-service equestrian and agricultural youth development organization operating 7 days a week and changing the culture of inner-city and urban youth to equestrians and cowboys. The powerful impact of this organization has been experienced for over 29 years as it continues to develop a legacy of success and accomplishments in the youth and community it serves.

In the last 29 years...

- We established ourselves as the leading day camp provider for children aged 7-18
- We launched additional activities and courses
- We developed a strong reputation by constantly focusing on what parents and youth want
- We create an environment which encourages youth to thrive, learn and develop while making friends and having fun
