Concrete Cowboy


Loaded with a star-studded cast and fantastic equine co-stars, Concrete Cowboy is a must-watch movie for any equestrian and is available on Netflix starting April 2, 2021. Based on the novel “Ghetto Cowboy” by G. Neri, it takes place in North Philadelph­ia where a troubled teen is caught between a life of crime and his estranged father’s vibrant urban-cowboy subculture.

Research for the film was done largely at Philadelph­ia Urban Riding Academy, and when the directors and stars of the film discovered PURA’s stables were becoming urbanized and needed a new home, they joined forces to ensure the legacy of the urban Black cowboy isn’t lost.
