One of the greatest SHOW-JUMPING HORSES of the country —CJ -15, a familiar face at the Dasara Torchlight Parade here (Mysore), died an orphan on Sunday(27/07/2014), at the Pinjarapole, where it was left by the mounted police, hardly a week ago. The horse, which was ridden by former Commandant of Mounted police, Maribha Shetty, and participated in many international and national equestrian events, won 33 shields and 50 medals.
However, Mounted police Commandant, S. Janardhan, blamed his predecessor for the lack of facilities to look after aged horses. His predecessor headed the department for more than 25 years. Isn”t this shameful ?
