The Palestinian Equestrian Club, located in the north of the Gaza Strip, is the largest of Gaza's equestrian clubs and draws participants from Gaza's best families.
Despite societal attitudes that discourage women's participation in sports, many girls have become members of the club and their families are welcome to come and watch them ride.
Though the fees are high enough that only the richest families can attend, both girls and boys are flocking to the club en masse.
The Friends Equestiran Club in the south of Gaza City is small, but many girls are drawn to it as one of the only sporting clubs that accepts them.
Mohammed al-Rifati, who owns the Friends Equestrian Club and works as a trainer, says there is no difference between how he teaches male and female students.
Many of the club members plan to continue to ride horses for years to come.
In Gaza, members do not have the luxury of sprawling meadows, as the tire pile in the background suggests.
The club is a space for many in the Gaza Strip to come together over a shared love for horses.
By the time schools let out for the summer, the club may see 100-150 new members each month, ensuring there will be horse lovers in Gaza for years to come.
