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.

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.

Erics Tip: I had never been on a horse before I did this and I had no idea what to expect. I was a little nervous, I’ll admit! I walk or cycle almost on a daily basis in Central Park, or I cross it with a taxi, but this was a whole new experience. I found it really surprising that I could have such a relaxed experience on such a huge animal. Are you a horse fan? Then you will definitely enjoy riding in Central Park. The guide will tell you everything about the horses, like what breed they are and how they are looked after. Are you, just like me, inexperienced? Then what could be better than learning to ride a horse in Central Park? I personally found this a fantastic experience, it was definitely not the last time I will do this ride. This trip would also make a great (romantic) gift to surprise a loved one.
