The Bronx Equestrian Center is a full service equestrian facility located in Pelham Bay Park offering Western and English riding styles for riders all levels of experience and interest.

Whether you want to treat your young children to a pony or hay wagon ride, or older children to proper riding lessons, you’ll enjoy the easy access, high quality, and low pricing at the Bronx Equestrian Center.

Each summer, the center offers an extensive children’s program designed to suit the needs and abilities of children between the ages of six and seventeen who are interested in horses and horsemanship. The program begins with a lecture and demonstration on horsemanship including care and grooming of the horse, correct use and care of horse equipment, and stable safety. Following the morning’s discussion, days will include grooming and tacking, riding lessons, trail rides, carriage rides and indoor activities on rainy days.

The Bronx Equestrian Center offers English and Western riding lessons at $40 for a half-hour private lesson, and $65 for a 1 hour private lesson. Walk-only trail rides are available every day for $35 per hour, and trail riding lessons are available for $40 per hour. An evaluation lesson is strongly recommended before entering the program for those students who have never ridden, have ridden elsewhere, or are returning to riding after an absence. This lesson allows each student to be placed in the group that is suitable to their present riding ability.

Adults will certainly enjoy a relaxing ride thru the beautiful woods of Pelham Bay Park. Whether for sport, a nature day, or a romantic getaway; you’ll be surprised how much you’ll enjoy the trails and lessons at the Bronx Equestrian Center. Plus, they have horses for people of sizes and all riding abilities.

The staff is warm, friendly, and knowledgeable, and can make anyone – young or old – feel comfortable on horseback. Though the barn is simple, they have a great outdoor riding ring, and Pelham Park’s trails are gorgeous and lush; so you’ll quickly forget how close you are to the city. The location is very convenient to public transportation, and is a short bus ride from the 6 train.
