Kannan’s enthusiasm to try out different activities, and become proficient in them is because of his father’s encouragement. It was during the lockdown that his father bought two horses so that his brother and he could learn horse riding. Mukesh, Kannan’s father even has plans to introduce horse riding in schools at affordable rates. He believes that horse riding is good for health, and improving physical fitness. It would play a major role in enhancing the fitness level and skills of young adults.
