    The girl's name is Krishna and she hails from Thrissur in the south Indian state of Kerala. Her horse's name is Ranakrish.

    Krishna, while talking to Sputnik said, "I occasionally use my horse to travel to school. That was my last day of my exam. I have in fact two horses Ranarish and Jhanvi and a team to train them." 

    Krishna is a tenth-grade student at Holy Grace School in the small town of Mala in the Thrissur district of Kerala. Her father is a priest in a temple.
