An equestrian sighting in Brooklyn

Unknown to most New Yorkers (even to most Brooklynites, apparently), one can actually go horseback riding at one's leisure without having to be a NYC mounted police officer. Kensington Stables, which is in very close proximity to Prospect Park, rents out horses to anyone who wants to tour the park along its bridle path.

I've never ridden a horse myself, and, unless my impending mid-life crisis involves wanting to try things I've never done before, I probably never will. However, my hope is that Marcus, my firstborn, as well as my currently-in-development nextborn, will eventually want to try their hand at being urban cowboys.
