In a landmark achievement for Indian equestrian sports, Shruti Vora, riding her horse Magnanimous, has made history as the first Indian rider to win a three-star Grand Prix event. This notable accomplishment came at the CDI-3 event held in Lipica, Slovenia, from June 7-9, where Shruti scored an impressive 67.761 points.

The competition saw Shruti outperform Moldova’s Tatiana Antonenco on Aachen, who finished with 66.522 points, and Austria’s Juliane Jerich on Quarter Girl, who secured third place with a score of 66.087 points.
