With the all of the excitement of the Belmont Stakes coming up on Saturday, many people may be wondering where can I ride a horse in NYC? Yes, it is true there is still a riding stable in a residential part of Queens, Forest Hills to be exact. The fact that you can walk to a place where you can ride a horse in NYC amazes many people. Lynne’s Riding School offers lessons from beginers to well established riders. They also offer boarding for those who want to keep their horse in the city. Forest Park offers 4 miles of horse paths in one of the last remaining natural forested areas of NYC is just a short trot from the stable to the “Brldle Path”
Check out the lessons section from Lynne’s Riding School here:
Whether you want to start on your way to dressage, barrel racing or simply just a summer’s trail ride, Lynne’s experienced instructors customize a horse riding plan that fits your needs. We work with adults and children (starting at age 6); beginners to seasoned riders. We have an indoor lesson ring, so you can continue your lessons year round.
We start our students with private lessons to build balance and skill in the saddle. We recommend that our riders begin in an English saddle, and when they are ready, continue on with English, or start learning Western, if they would like. After as series of private indoor lessons, our instructors assess our students to see if they are ready (and weather allowing), to continue private or group lessons in beautiful Forest Park, one of NYC’s best kept secrets.
