To encourage and empower inner city youth toward positive and successful lives through the use of horses.
Ebony Horsewomen, Inc. (EHI), founded in 1984, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit youth development organization, developed by African-American female equestrians.
We have successfully serviced over 2,800 youth over the past eight years in the Greater Hartford Community. Our dedication to provide positive youth development affords us the opportunity to work with many of youth who remain with the organization's programs through high school and into higher education.
Twenty-six years ago EHI was founded upon the knowledge and belief in the healing power that horses give to youth. Based on this belief and our general belief of how animals teach and heal, we have developed a unique array of therapeutic programs that includes a variety of farm animals, aquatic and reptiles which provide creative inquiry based academic learning, social and emotional development.
Our full service Equestrian Center, open 7 days per week adds a new dimension and vibrancy to the community through cultural and agricultural based events.
