       3 . What was the idea behind launching this venture?

Happy Saddles aim to bring joy, laughter and fun into people’s life. Horse riding gives people freedom in a gallop. I don’t remember a single tourist who has got on top of a horse and could hide their smiles. Launching this venture first-thing-first is out of passion for me.

Happy saddles is the first of its kind in Meghalaya.

The specialty of this venture is that people can avail horse riding now closer than they ever imagine. Many dream of horse riding but most times it only remained a dream. We make that dream come true. The joy of riding is a beauty in itself. You can just dangle your legs and eyes forward and hands on the reigns and let your mind be free.

             Happy Saddles wish for people to appreciate the beauty that is out there than to just be in our rooms and keep scrolling in our social media.

Horse riding is a therapy for the mind.  Horses being social animals teach us how to establish bonds, connect and rejoice.

  1. What’s your wow moment till date?

1) The sight of a horse nearby. Tall, Handsome with the shiny coat yet so gentle, kind and Majestic.

2) The first time a horse ran and I was riding it. I thought to myself that I was going to die. But it turns out to be the best part about horse riding is when the horse run.

  1. Message that you would like to share with our readers?
