She has been riding for the last 33 years. She is a well-known figure in riding circles and horse shows. She was placed fourth in the Dressage Haig in the National Games in 1985. Anuradha won the junior dressage championship in 1989 and has been a regular participant and medal winner in the ladies hacks. She won the ladies hacks in 1991, and after a hiatus, stood third in 2008 and second in 2009. Anuradha has been instructed in dressage by English instructors from the Wyke Riding School in the U.K. She has attended coaching camps held by Olympic coaches across the country.
She is ably assisted and supported by the Senior Stable Manager (colloquially called “Saab”). The “Saab” is a proficient rider who takes horse riding classes and is invariably a proud alumnus of the Cavalry Regiment of the Indian Army. There is also a Facility Manager to assist with day-to-day administration, most importantly scheduling the horse riding classes for our members. Then there are our stable hands or grooms (colloquially called “Syce”) who apart from undertaking their stable duties also help our youngest members gain confidence in the saddle by walking alongside with them while they ride. Not the least, at the club you will always find a bevy of the friendliest dogs, who the members sometimes find hard to leave, even more than the horses and the club, after their riding lessons.
