Riverdale Equestrian Centre
Serious equestrians-in-the-making can expect genteel, English-style riding and the chance to learn dressage, or fancy-pants precision movements, at the 21-acre facility. For true fanatics, the stables even offer an afterschool program with pickup service in Manhattan. It's not cheap: Private lessons start at $55 per half hour. But the opportunity to trot around a tree-shaded riding ring decked out in jodhpurs? Priceless.
