New York, NY –
Its not all that unusual to hear the clip clop of hooves on the streets of New York - be it from the carriage horses in Central Park or police officers on horseback.
But in parts of Brooklyn and Queens - the sound often comes from horses ridden by flamboyant Black men in cowboy hats. They ride the streets as living testaments to the legacy of the African Americans who helped to conquer the West. WNYC's Allison Keyes reports.
