A Nigerian lady identified as Jemila Bio Ibrahim has further proven that what a man can do, a woman can do better.
The young lady, who is the only female member of Emirates Equestrians Club in Ilorin, the Kwara state capital, has called on women to embrace horse-riding.
In an interview with BBC News Yoruba, Jemila said she has always loved horse since she was a kid, adding that there is nothing wrong for a woman to ride the animal.
According to the woman, Islam is not against women riding horse. She said horse-riding is fun and should be tried by other women.
She said she had fallen off the horse several times, but such experience shouldn't deter anyone from riding horse.
