SeaHorse Equestrian Training Facility

Seahorse Equestrian is one of a kind Equine Training Center located on the beach side home of Olympian rider and trainer, Imtiaz Anees. A unique training facility for horses and riders for any equestrian discipline. A serene setting in a small fishing village Nargole, Gujarat (180 km from Mumbai, India) away from the hustle and pollution of the cities where your horses can enjoy walking on the beach, swimming in salt water with the lovely sea breeze enjoying the soothing sound from the waves.

At Seahorse we take pride in the care and professional management of the horses, designing a specific work plan for each one. We are a boutique stable and your horse is not just a number for us. We grow our own organic Lucerne and combine it with international feed providing the best nutrition.

My emphasis has always been on correct education and foundation for all horses. The amalgamation of exercise, stabling, turnout time, and salt water therapy along with hill work, we have it all for your horses to succeed.

We are in no rush; our number one priority is to encourage relaxation and then teach the horse to move properly off the leg; we want horses to work actively forwards as once the hindquarters begin to engage, we can then think about working into a contact.

We take pride in our quality training and conscientious care.

My Story

This is the story of a young boy with an impossible dream—competing at the Olympics. From the age of four, Imtiaz Anees took to horse-riding like fish to water. It soon became a passion, one that continued through his life, beginning with his first competitive win at the age of six, eventually winning multiple equestrian events both nationally and internationally. Imtiaz is
the only Indian rider to complete an equestrian three-day event at the Olympics, in Sydney in 2000, at the age of thirty, in an elite sport long associated with royalty and wealth and primarily the army in India.

In Riding Free, Imtiaz re-traces the major milestones of his riveting twenty-year-long journey. The stories he tells are heartfelt, emotional and inspirational for the next generation of dreamers—a way to ‘give back’, in small measure, the enormous goodwill and help he received from all kinds of people in his Olympics journey. Behind Imtiaz’s success are also the struggles and setbacks that pushed him to work harder and achieve peak performance. In a sport where the result depends on both man and animal, the deep bond Imtiaz shares with his horses will leave animal lovers spellbound. Here is a story that
will inspire every athlete to ‘never give in’.
