Boys and girls with the Levittown Police Athletic League recently visited the New York Equestrian Center in West Hempstead, where they were given a chance to learn more about the sport of horseback riding.
However, not all of the lessons focused on how to ride. The children also learned to groom the horses and were taught about the different breeds and proper color names of each horse at the center.
One parent said, “they like that the Levittown PAL offers this program, because their child does not participate in typical team sports. This gives him an opportunity to get some exercise and meet new friends.”
The six-week program came to a close on a beautiful day. “It was great fun,” said Olivia Irwin, who looks forward to joining again in the future.

Employees at the Levittown Public Library, with a talent for knitting, demonstrate their commitment to the community’s teens by making “amigurumi”—small knitted or crocheted stuffed toys—for use in the reading program.
