As soon as Alexa Rahman '24 is dismissed from her last class of the day, she gets ready to practice. But if you listened to the vocal performance major practice, you wouldn’t hear harmonic notes, but the clip-clap of a horse’s hooves.
Rahman’s practice takes place at the Rolling Oaks Morgan stable in Gansevoort, N.Y. where she practices hunt and saddle seat riding with her three horses. In between taking online classes toward her degree, Alexa is continuing to pursue a lifelong passion of hers — competitive equestrianism.
Rahman, who has been riding horses for 15 years, said that the competitions create an immersive learning experience.
