Lakeview boy rides like the wind


Isaiah Forte, 9, of Lakeview, recently competed in the Hampton Classic Horse Show on Aug. 26. 

Forte began therapeutic horseback riding at Horseability in Old Westbury last September and began competing in the Long Island Horse Show Series for Riders with Disabilities in the spring. He later qualified for the finals held at the Hampton Classic Horse Show, a world-class equestrian competition held in Bridgehampton, NY. 

Forte competed in the leader/sidewalker division and brought home a 3rd place, 4th place and 6th place ribbon for the three classes.  Forte’s family is all very proud of Isaiah and looks forward to him competing in the future.
