Best Kids' Sports - Horseback Riding
Claremont Riding Academy
175 West 89th Street
212-724-5100


The stables are more than a century old and the teaching program goes back some 70 years. Rides in Central Park are a big draw -- but so are the personable and very kid-friendly teachers. Group lessons are $40 per hour; private lessons are $50 per half-hour; riding in Central Park is $100 per hour with a chaperone, $45 per hour if child is accompanied by an experienced rider. (Cushier alternative: the Manhattan Riding Academy at Chelsea Piers, 212-367-9090.)
