The Children's Riding Club was conceptualized in the early 60's by a group of distinguished American women lead by Mrs O'Connor - who initially conceived the idea of starting a pony club for her very own children. Prime Minister Pandit Nehru, known for his love for children, provided the space required and the ponies were in turn provided by the Indian Army at the time. Mrs O'Connor soon started inviting Indian parents to send their children to learn horse riding skills and the Club wheels have been in motion ever since. The management duties fell in the hands of a very capable Aditya Krishna, soon after Mrs O' Connor left the Indian sub continent. He was recognized as India's only civilian probable for Show Jumping in the 1982 Asian Games - quite a feat that! The baton was then passed onto his sister, Anuradha Krishna, a former junior dressage champion - who currently performs the duties of administrator, Instructor & Public Relations Professional.
As the name suggests, the club was primarily set up to teach children the skills of Horse Riding but today the Club caters to the training needs of adults as well. For those interested, a non refundable Membership fee of INR 7500 will be charged for starters.
