I am experienced in leading tours on a wide range of topics and passionate about New York City! NYC's extraordinary museums and Equestrian New York are my specialities, but all of my tours are specifically designed to address various interests, ages, learning styles and abilities. I have been a city resident for over 30 years and am retired from a career in art, history and natural history museums. I first visited New York in 1978 to fulfill my dream of showing horses at the National Horse Show in Madison Square Garden. I am originally from Kansas City, MO and have been an avid equestrian all my life. Hence the interest in all things equestrian. These experiences have enabled me to become a knowledgeable, engaging and entertaining guide. Areas of expertise include New York city museums and historical sites, art, history, architecture, equines/horse racing, sports and natural history. R.
