Event Details

Benefit Ride for Detroit Horse Power

Detroit Horse Power (DHP) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded in 2015 by David Silver, a former Detroit elementary school teacher. DHP opens up opportunities for urban youth in Detroit to connect with learn about/from horses. They learn how to care for them, ride them and in doing so the children learn perseverance, empathy, responsible risk-taking, confidence and self-control.

This program started as a summer camp and has grown into a year-round after school program. Right now the kids are bused to participating barns that volunteer their facilities and horses. Some of these barns are over an hour away! It makes for a long day for the dedicated children. Recently, DHP has acquired land within the city limits of Detroit! The hope is to raise funds for an equestrian facility to be built at this location. Having this facility within the city limits not only utilizes vacant land in Detroit, helping with the city’s
comeback, it will allow DHP to expand the number of children who can benefit from the programs offered.

This is where all the proceeds from Metropark Express are going this year! We are hoping to write a big check to Detroit Horse Power at the end of the ride. I hope you will join us and if you are able to make a donation on top of your ride entry it will be greatly appreciated! To find out more about Detroit Horse Power go to www.detroithorsepower.org
