Marwari- As the world knows
More than the people, the horse is famous!
Like the traditions of the Marwari community that are well preserved over the centuries, this royal breed of horse has been painstakingly taken care of within the harsh climatic conditions of the mythical Marwar– literally meaning the region of death.
Spiritual horse- Marwari
The famous inward-pointing ears of this horse seem to have a crucial spiritual significance. Instead of being bahirmukhi: that is extrovert, MARWARI is antarmukhi: that is introvert and appears to be in the trance of meditation.
During a Marwari marriage, the bride groom rides the horse to visit the wedding venue that is first worshipped and fed too in an auspicious ceremony called GHUDCHADI.
