Alishba Mohsin Becomes Pakistan’s First Female Jockey At 18

Alishba Mohsin, an 18-year-old from Lahore, has become Pakistan’s first female jockey.

Alishba, who is currently completing her A-Level, was officially made Pakistan’s first female apprentice jockey after her first horse race that took place on October 10, 2021, in the Imtiaz Memorial Cup in Lahore.

Even though young kids are scared of animals, Alishba isn’t your everyday ordinary girl.

She fell in love with horses as a little girl. “I came to Lahore race club when I was a little girl, and that was the time when I fell in love with the place,” she said.

Alishba joined the Lahore race club at the age of 13, but she had to stop after a month as her studies were being affected.

After four years, at the age of 17, she decided to resume her passion professionally.

Even though her family is very supportive of her ambition, they are always worried about her as horseriding is a dangerous sport.

Alishba wants to see horseriding getting popularized in Pakistan.
