Rohan More with his horse

About the expert: 

Rohan grew up on the stud farm, where riding horses preceded learning to climb trees, swimming or falling off bicycles.He loves to sit and chat about all things under the sun and most of his philosophies on life have been learnt from horses and other animals, which have earned him the nickname of Dada. Rohan has won multiple national level equestrian tournaments and has successfully coached many current national level riders as well. However his true passion, focus and dedication is towards teaching at the grass root level to help build equestrian sports, acting as a translator and mediator between horses and those who love them.
