Jairaj started riding at a very young age of 7 and had a natural talent towards horses which was spotted by his parents. Started solo riding at the age of 7 and joined Madras riding club in 1985 where he further developed horsemanship skills and learnt more about horses under able instructors. Later to further his knowledge he was introduced as a civilian to the 61st Cavalry in Officers training academy to ride the cavalry horses and compete in equestrian activities and play polo. Granted a place in the MAC polo team to compete at state level and in equestrian activities. Won many awards and recognitions in Gymkhana Races (champion jockey 1999), many equestrian shows for jumping, Dressage, hacks, polo and games. Represented at state level polo teams.
