Great place for kids

If your kids love horses, you have to take them here for a pony ride. My daughter enjoyed her ride and went around a second time.

Took my son here for he can expierence a horseback trail ride and must admit, he enjoyed it immensely. But one suggestion that never crossed my mind was to wear long pants, not shorts for the ride like we did. Its more for the bugs and branches/leaves that you ride by but is wise to wear long pants.

Filthy!!! The horses are kept in their saddles from morning until night. When not on a trail, they are put into their 5 x 6 cinder block cubicle with their face staring into the cinder block wall. After the horses return from a ride, they aren't unsaddled and hosed down, they are sent back out for the next group. These... More

My experience at the Bronx Equestrian Centre was the worst horse riding experience I ever had! Well, horse riding itself was actually okay except that we weren't allowed to canter nor trot... What really upset me was the behavior of the staff. One female staff yelled at me from far away I shouldn't 'yank' the horse, even though I obviously... More

I travel all over the world but I was really surprised how good this horseback riding tour was. What really surprised me most was how cheap it was! Only $30 for an hour tour!!!

We took our son (21 mos.) to see the horses and Michael and the rest of the staff could not have been nicer to him. They let him watch the horses for as long as he wanted and Michael was incredibly kind to him, encouraging him to feed the horses and even finding a horseshoe to take home. To our... More

We did enjoy our time trail riding and I would recommend going, however we were given no instructions or helmets so I would also recommend asking for helmets and asking questions. A bunch of our horses also got spooked by a car playing loud music :/. But I don't know how often this happens and, again, I would recommend it,... More

My bf and I looked for horseback riding online and came up with this little jewel. At only $30/person/hour, it was a great deal. Although we showed up at the same time as a group of 12 people, they made room for us, so that we didn't have to come back later. My horse was a little finicky, but our... More
