20" W x 27" H

Stevenson’s H.O.O.F., or Horse Owners of Fairmount, series documents the people and animals of the Fletcher Street community, a remnant of Philadelphia’s little-known tradition of inner-city riding. Their Urban Riding Club, located in the Strawberry Mansion neighborhood of North Philadelphia, teaches local kids to ride and take care of horses as a means of learning responsibility and building self-esteem. Fletcher Street’s cowboys are struggling to preserve the club to ensure their continued presence for the kids they serve. CT
