JOEL AT KENSINGTON STABLES
Wearing leather chaps and denim vests and being a master of the Western horse-riding technique are hardly character traits expected from a Brooklyn native, unless of course you've been lead through Prospect Park on horseback by JOEL AT KENSINGTON STABLES. He takes riders out bare-chested and when asked where he learned to love riding, Joel barks, "Brooklyn! Where da ya think?" He tests the mettle of first-time riders by making them navigate a traffic circle mere seconds after mounting the nag.
