As my son rides.............
8 months ago, on May 2014, Om started his riding career. Though it was introduced to him by us but he got into it so naturally that he could never come out of it. It seems he is just born for riding. He dreams horse, draws horse and even runs like a horse showing all the four types of movement of a horse.
So after 8 months he was sent for the IDL tournament held at Tolly Club for the dressage category of Children-III. There were four candidates. After school when he reached the venue, he was more calm than us.
Apart from Om all the other candidates got disqualified. Only Om completed his course successfully and properly and that also on a jumping horse not ideal for dressage. He was unofficially declared the gold medalist. Then came the last moment entries. The Tolly Club candidate had to become the gold medalist. So astride a very good horse the disqualified rider came for a second chance. That was not enough. A candidate of Children-II who was incapable of completing his own course made an entry in Children-III even having years and years of experience.
So now Om is the Bronze Medal winner which is equivalent to Gold to us. Hip Hip Hurrah!!!!!!!!!!!
