Riding in NYC
/ Staten Island
was when New York City was nothing but horses dutifully
pulling delivery carts, cablecars (and the first taxi
cabs), along with elegant
coaches of the rich and well-to-do on Fifth Avenue

the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island still provide
a day of fun with lessons, well-cared for horses and trails.
