Fouaad Mirza Makes Equestrian History for India
Indian Team Takes Second, Embassy International Riding School Shares the Glory!
Did nature or nurture lead him to create history for Indian Equestrian sport?
Sunday August 26, 2018—Fouaad Mirza broke a decades-long dry spell for India Sunday by bringing home an equestrian individual medal in the Asian Games (Asiad) for the first time since 1982. Mirza also guided the Indian team to a second place overall finish.
Mirza showcased top-level riding skills in Jakarta while riding Seigneur Medicott, a former European Championship winning mount. Mirza led the event after qualifiers and only missed overall gold by nicking a single fence, dropping behind Japan’s Oiwa Yoshiaki.
