Lessons start with the basics of grooming and tacking, moving on to address riding fundamentals such as how to stop, steer, and trot. More experienced students can fast-forward to absorb more advanced techniques.
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.
