BROOKLYN - The Kensington Stables provide Brooklyn residents with an escape from bustling city life.

Walker Blankinship has owned the stables for 20 years. He says that an important part of owning a stable is building relationships with the horses, and then facilitating further relationships between clients and the animals.

Blankinship says his business provides people with a place where they can learn to ride without having to leave the borough.

In 2009, the city opened its first horse lanes in Park Circle.
