Horseback Riding In Central Park

4 May

I just read this article about how they want to bring horseback riding back into Central Park.

I am all in favor!

This photo was with the article – a rider crossing the street to enter the park, back when the Claremont Riding Academy was still open.

I would really love to ride a horse along the bridle path one day.

Here is the path when my nephew P was visiting with his friend D – Hubby and I took them for a stroll along it.

And, here they are – indeed on horses in Central Park – although not quite the ones that the article is talking about…

Hubby once confided that he thought it was a “bridal path” – I had to correct him on that one.

He’s not exactly a horseman.

I wonder if I could get him to go horseback riding with me, if they reinstate the activity there?

Here I am, in a very happy time on horseback

The only other family picture that I seem to have with a horse, is this one – of my Dad on “Old Sparkplug”.

Oh, yes – and this one, of my dear Grandfather at a sales meeting (?!).

Of the three riders, I by far look the most ecstatic, don’t you agree?

As a child (and even as an adult), I begged and begged and begged my parents to get me a horse.


Nope, nope, and nope.

But maybe someday soon, Hubby and I can go riding in Central Park.

Where do I sign up?
