Sport Specific Information

When and where did you begin this sport? He initially took up riding as a child at Delhi Riding School in India, but it wasn't until later in life that he began training seriously.
Why this sport? “I was recovering from a long legal battle and a friend of mine took me trail riding as a way to relax and have some fun. From an innocent trail ride, it has now become this passionate and intense pursuit of excellence.”
Club / Team Zeitgeist Equestrian: Petaluma, CA, USA
Training Regime 24 x 7 x 365... Learning to listen to the whispering of my horses and work as hard as they do when they have saddles on their backs... to respect them and look after them in a way to honor their participation and effort in these acts of valor and courage where they are way more important than us.
Sponsor Urgently looking for one... for the moment we are self sponsored with our own funds.
