Our horses & stabel-

All our horses used in rides are of pure Marwari breed, Marwari horses are related to indigenous horse society of India and Marwar horse breeding Institute.

Our stable is also a progressive institute in the development of this breed. Alike the western breed, these horses are expert at walk, trot, canter and gallop, which is a showcase of wide experience of our trainers at our stable.

Even today, in many of traditional ceremonies, these horses are used for royal welcome, whose height ranges from 15 to 15.3 hh and colour being bay, dark brown, chestnut, dun, grey, skewbald, piebald, etc.

Our stable, as a breeding institute, is aimed to help horses and their owners for developing their health and economic condition.

In reality after the finishing of kingdom ruling, and establishment of foreign rulers, since 18th century, this breed was only used for riding by groom in marriages which resulted into the downfall of living standard of the horses and their owners.

Currently, decrement in health, lack of good stallions, lack of tradional horse-keeping, lack of good trainers are few challenges for which this stable is devoted since a long time.

The stable is looking after timely health check of horses, providing them medicines, and organizing horse shows and competitions so as to improve this breed.

Beside this, keeping a collection of traditional horse costumes, decorative things and jewelleries and horse literature is also one of the missions.

The stable has achieved a good name in exporting Marwari horses to foreign countries.

Although Tejroop, Raajroop, Faujroop, Kesar, Mahima, Apsara (name of the horses) and other horses are known by their respective qualities.

Yet the best horse of the stable is ’Ali-Baksh’ which is famous as all rounder horse even being a stallion.

Its major presentations are the various dance postures and dancing steps on the beats of drums.

It provides a deep impact by fusing the western and traditional riding style.

This horse is highly respected due to its dark bay colour with white four legs and face, among local horses.

That’s why the local people use its horse-shoe in the form of ring in fingers. To see a show with Ali Baksh see itinerary 3 - A ride between cultural life and wild life
