The Kerala teenager who quickly found fame after riding to her examination hall on a horse has now revealed when she chose to do it. The teen, who hails from Thrissur, claims she rides to school on special days or when she gets bored. Krishna says she chose to ride to school that day since it was the last day of her Class 10 board exam.

“I do not go daily on horses. Only on some special days, or when I get bored or on some exam days also, I ride on a horse to school. If you ask me what was special on that day that was the last day of my Class 10 board exam,” she told ANI.

Krishna shot to fame when the video of her riding a horse when viral and even attracted the attention of industrialist Anand Mahindra. She was seen confidently making her way across town to get to her exam hall.

“One of my friends said riding horse isn’t that easy and it’s not possible for a girl to do that. He said it’s only possible for women like Jhansi Ki Rani. So I thought why not a normal girl can ride a horse,” Krishna told the news agency.

Krishna apparently fell in love with horse riding when she was in Class 7 and became a pro after years of practice. Now, she frequently goes for joyrides on her horse, Ranakrish.
