VIVA – Becoming an athlete may not be one of the ideals for most Indonesian people. However, Iftirasy chose to take that route.
The girl whose full name is Iftirasy Ahmad Falah Pujiyono has made up her mind to be involved in the world of sports. His choice was not like most people who pursue more popular sports. Instead, he prefers horse riding as his sport.
Although it looks easy, riding is actually an extreme sport that requires a lot of physical energy. Not to mention having to be able to build a good relationship with the horse in order to appear in harmony on the field.
Luckily, Ifti’s struggle is fully supported by her family. So, he can bring out his best ability when competing in the show jumping number which is his specialty. Although several times had tried the dressage number.
“I started to pursue equestrian sport when I was eight years old,” Ifti said in a statement to the media crew.
“Choose riding because it’s challenging. We have to work with living creatures, namely horses. My family also supports my choice,” he continued.
