Chateau Stables is the oldest and the smallest remaining active horse stable in Manhattan. Its rich history begins in the 1800s when it was built as one of the first livery stables on the West Side of Manhattan. It is also the only family-run stable in the area. Chateau Stables was established in 1967 and is known for providing theatrical animals for film, movies and TV, as well as horses and carriages for weddings, hay rides and other events.
