The Federation of Black Cowboys, A Place That Matters

federation black cowboysThe Federation of Black Cowboys, at 83-11 South Conduit Avenue in Howard Beach, Queens, are dedicated to teaching city kids the fundamentals of horsemanship and the history of Black cowboys in the American West. Since 1994, they’ve been practicing these arts at Cedar Lane Stables on land leased from the Parks Department. Just last week that lease was renewed, ending a long period of uncertainty about the future of the stables. You may also have seen the cowboys at parades and events around the city.

The cowboys invite inquiries about events, tours, lessons and educational activities. They also welcome you to drop by. Pony rides are available for $5.00. Mark your calendars for June 22-24, 2007, for the annual Trail Ride, when cowboys and -girls, horse lovers, and fans come from all over the region to feast, camp, and ride. See For public transit, a Federation member suggests: L train to New Lots; #15 bus (toward JFK) to 78th & Linden (at the Rite Aid); walk ¼ mile.
