Courtesy Stable is a distinctive facility, located in the Wissahickon Valley of Philadelphia's Fairmount Park. With over 9,200 acres, Fairmount Park has been called "one of the largest urban parks in the country." Courtesy Stable is located in an urban setting, bordered on two sides by residential housing and on the other two sides by Fairmount Park.
We believe the stable is uniquely situated to offer local residents in the
surrounding community, as well as visitors
to Fairmount Park, access to an equine
environment that they might otherwise be
unlikely to experience.
Courtesy Stable has capacity for 12 horses. All of our box stalls are lined with rubber mats and pine shavings. Horses are turned out daily, in three turnouts, where the horses have all day to exercise and socialize. The lighted riding arena has recently been resurfaced with new footing, which we’ve heard “straight from the horse’s mouth," is a joy to play in. Enjoy riding through Fairmount Park's 56 miles of beautiful trails by entering the park at the Houston Meadow trailhead located directly behind our exercise ring.
The Boarders and Stewards of Courtesy Stable is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which maintains the facility located at 901 East Cathedral Road, Philadelphia, PA. Courtesy Stable is a place unto its own, where our relaxed atmosphere promotes goodwill and nurtures the equine spirit. We are collectively unique in our walks of life, but our commonality is our dedicated approach to the care and well being of the horse and his environment, as well as instilling good horsemanship practices in our youth of today. The Mission for the BSCS is to create an equine friendly environment that provides a quality care facility for our horses as well as preserves the natural beauty & history found in the Wissahickon Valley. We strive to offer the opportunity to improve equine awareness through education for the surrounding general public, as well as ourselves in any and all areas of riding, horse care, and horse health. We aspire to encourage and enhance the relationship between the general public and the horse community in the neighborhood, as well as the entire Wissahickon Valley.
