It has a long-standing history dating back to the 15th century, originating as a way to settle disputes and matters of honour using swords.

Equestrian (Horse-riding) Club

There are not many chances to interact with animals within your school curriculum. If you’re an animal lover, joining an Equestrian club as your CCA will give you the chance to do horse-riding and learn more about horses.

Horses are loyal, intelligent, and resilient animals that have had an inextricable bond with humans dating back centuries ago.

Not to mention, horse riding also has benefits for your body! It builds on your strength, balance, and coordination.

Horse riding is a popular sport and leisure activity that you have to pay expensive fees to enjoy outside. It is a privilege to be able to enjoy it with the school’s subsidy!

If you think you would love to learn more about horses and how to ride them, here are two schools that offer the Equestrian (Horse-riding) Club:

  • Regent Secondary School
