Horseback Riding in Central Park
Horseback riding in Central Park is a relaxing way to discover the park. Explore your surroundings in comfort astride a horse, during a one or two hour hack over the bridle paths of the park. You ride the horse independently and the guide will ride in front of you on the paths that lead you through the park. Whether you are a seasoned equestrian or it is your first time on a horse, this is a unique experience for all.
This tour is not available anymore. You can book a bike tour in Central Park instead.
Extraordinary Horse Ride
You meet your guide and horse at Tavern on the Green in Central Park. The ride will be with a small group and starts with the guide distributing your helmet and a short explanation of how to handle and steer your horse. Then, off you go! In Central Park, a light trot is the fastest pace that is permitted, so it’s a safe activity. At a relaxed pace, the guide escorts you over the bridle paths. The route changes per ride, depending on the conditions on the day. There aren’t many horse riders in Central Park so it is also a special thing for passers by to see! During my ride I was often waved to and people wanted to take photos of the horses. If you go horse riding in Central Park, you really get the feeling that you are doing something exclusive.
