Humans of Sacred Heart- Lauren Capolongo '17


How long have you been horseback riding and do you have any upcoming riding competitions?
“I have been riding for twelve years now and it’s something that I want to do for the rest of my life. My horse’s name is Valence 7, also known as Val. I compete in the high children jumper, and hope to move up to the low Junior very soon. Unfortunately, riding is a lifestyle, one that I do not wish to pursue. However, I hope to continue competing when I am older and continue to watch my best friend Lauren Fischer compete. I would love to see her go to the Olympics one day.”
How do you practice during the winter? Do you go to Florida? If so, what do you like about training there?
“Yes, I arrive in Florida every Friday night around 12:30a.m. and get to the hotel around 1:00 a.m. My Saturdays start with a lesson at 7:00 a.m. following my division that I will be competing in. My favorite part about going to Florida every weekend is the weather. However, I really do not like my farmers tan and I hope that it goes away by prom.”
The King Street Chronicle thanks junior Lauren Capolongo ’17 for her contributions to “Humans of Sacred Heart.”
