At our school, you can participate in many clubs and activities. An activity that I enjoy is the equestrian team, which is active in both the autumn and spring. This club is also open to both Kellenberg High School and the Latin School.

Once a week, the equestrian team travels to the North Shore Equestrian Center at LIU Post to practice diligently and perfect riding techniques. During the first meeting, participants are broken into three groups, based on their experience and skills. In the following meetings, each group practices various levels of riding, such as walking with our backs straight, trotting while keeping our hands steady and even cantering.

When it rains, we are permitted to run obstacle courses inside the barn and groom the horses. The equestrian club is a fun after-school activity that requires care and dedication.
