We use the power of horses to expand opportunities for Detroit's youth.


Detroit Horse Power is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded in 2015 by former Detroit elementary school teacher, David Silver. We teach urban youth to ride and care for horses as a way to develop critical skills that will set them up for future success. Our planned urban equestrian center will be built on repurposed vacant land in Detroit and offer year-round youth programming while supporting a stronger community.
