Times Square Riding Academy

Paula and Lester Crampton draw on more than a quarter century of equestrian experience as they oversee stables at Times Square Riding Academy where competition-ready horses and reliable learning ponies munch on their hay. The academy’s instructors pair students of all skill levels with suitable horses during lessons on the art of English riding, which focuses on hunter and jumper skills, and culminates in the ability to serve high tea while astride. Indoor and outdoor riding arenas let the equestrian experts squeeze in a lesson no matter the weather, and a heated observation room enables parents to watch their children’s class without hiring a dragon to breathe on their hands in the winter.

    “Best and most knowledgeable staff for everybody: children and elderly; beginner to expert. I have never rode a horse before. I was trotting in 20 minutes. And I'm OLD, fat and ugly. I loved seeing 6-10 year old GIRLS, controlling this big wonderful animals, walking, trotting and even JUMPING. I believe I can be ready for the 2016 Equestrian Olimpics in Brazil. Or I'll be the next Latin Roy Rogers/Gene Autry.”
