Many children are fascinated by animals. But there is something about horses that seems to naturally draw children to these majestic creatures.

Luckily for Philly families, several farms, stables, and equestrian centers throughout the Delaware Valley offer Philly kids the chance to get up close and personal with horses. Whether through summer camp or weekly lessons, children can experience the thrill of riding horseback while building self-confidence and responsibility.

We have rounded up a number of spots throughout the region that provide camp opportunities and lessons for kids interested in horses. For other class or camp ideas for your children, be sure to check out our Philly Classes Guide and Camps Guide.
