City Ranch, a non-profit community equestrian educational organization
founded in 2007. City Ranch is working to reintroduce horsemanship to Baltimore
City through a variety of programs and services. We offer horseback riding
lessons, guided trail rides, and lessons in basic horse care. Through our
partnership with local public schools, we strive to offer children and
youth a positive focus, to challenge them to succeed, and put some fun
in the "hood!" City Ranch will bring the Horses to Your Event. Click here

The City Ranch is also starting a new program to help kids swim and stay
fit by visiting the beaches in Nassau Bahamas.
