Medicott looking graceful and the way he is carrying himself is just so mesmerising. Both are moving as if it's a walking open grassland of Germany.

Just enjoying every moment.

Fouaad Mirza enters the course with all the elegance.

Seigneur Medicott, lovingly known as Micky, helped Fouaad Mirza win the two silvers at the Asian Games and they both share a strong emotional connect with each other. At first, Fouaad picked Dajara 4 for the Olympics but in the last few gruelling weeks of competing and practise, Mirza felt that Dajara 4 had undergone a lot of pressure. This prompted the change in the final entry with Seigneur Medicott for the Tokyo Olympics as the horse was moving better

All you need to know about Equestrian

Equestrian is an expensive sport and requires a lot of investment. Apart from other horses invested for the growth of the sport in India and backing other riders, the Embassy Group purchased Seigneur Medicott for 300,000 Euros in 2017, and Dajara 4 was purchased for 275,000 Euros in 2019. Besides the cost of the horses; their travel, maintenance, healthcare, upkeep, trainers, and quarantine costs are a substantial part of the expenses.  Embassy Group continues to support the sport in the country and is committed to see the Indian flag waving high in global events such as the Olympics.
