She got inclined towards equestrianism during Covid-19 period when she was first introduced to horse riding by her uncle, when she was just 5 years old.

Sharing her daughter’s achievements, Rohit Sareen, Trisha’s father, said, “This is her third event, first being The Delhi Horse Show two years back organised by The Army Polo and Riding Centre, New Delhi. Then she participated in the Regional Equestrian League 2022 and Chandigarh Horse Rider’s Society (CHRS) Horse Show.” Trisha also bagged a silver in children hacks category at the event.

Elated by her performance, Trisha, a student of Class 3, who aspires to join the crime investigation department, remarked, “I enjoy horse riding and spending time with ‘Shehanshah’, the horse with whom I practice and perform.”

Trisha is a student of Sat Paul Mittal School, Dugri, and is a pet lover and has a keen interest in art.

Stressing on the lack of infrastructure, Rohit said, “Adequate sports infrastructure is the most important aspect for increasing participation among youth. Due to the lack of a professional training facility in our city, we have to take our daughter to Jalandhar every weekend, where she is trained by police personnel who represent PAP nationally and internationally in horse riding.”
