Horse-riding is such an expensive sport that you’d had to be really wealthy or part of a fancy riding club to have any hopes of winning a medal. But the Army Equestrian Node in Meerut Cantonment, set up in 2001 has riders and horses forging strong bonds and training hard, because their mission is medals. Established with an aim to help groom talent, it prepares Army riders and Boy Scouts for the international sports arena and is now part of the Army’s Olympic Mission wing.
