Equestrian New York
Did you know that in the 1880s New York and Brooklyn combined had an estimated 160,000 horses? Well, minus all the manure, many wonderful vestiges of equine life are still visible in the city as well as tributes to the horse’s role in the history in the urban environment. Combining her passions for New York City and all things equestrian, Robin will show you some of the magnificent monuments, historic traces and contemporary places where one can still find horses in the city. There is evidence in the architecture and historical record and an incredible array of equine art throughout the five boroughs!
Equestrian New York tours can include visits to museums to see equine art and related artifacts, and on some tours if it is possible to visit live equines! Robin will share the fascinating story of the horse in the urban environment, the importance of the equine to the development of the city and nation, and the sporting life including leisure and racing. This tour is completely customizable to your specific interests.
