120 Northwestern Ave., 215/242-8892,
Surrounded by open fields at the north end of Wissahickon Creek’s Forbidden Drive in Fairmount Park, Northwestern Stables provide a sophisticated horseback riding experience that brings English-style riding to Philadelphia.
The experienced staff leads a summer camp for young riders and a schooling show that specializes in flat riding and jumps. A six-week riding lesson costs $250 and sessions are held throughout the year except when summer camp is in session.
