Lynn's Riding School is located near Forest park in Queens. There is another stables that services this park, but Lynn's is better for beginners, and lets face it: Most New Yorkers don't know which end of the horse is the front! I would recommend trying Lynn's even if you have never come near a horse in your life. The horses are extra gentle. As a bonus, Forest Park has some of the best bridle paths in New York City. In fact, you will have to keep reminding yourself that this wooded oasis is actually IN New York City.
