About the Marwari
The Marwari is an Indian breed of horse from the Marwar (Jodphur) region. They are easily recognized by their ear tips, which turn inward. They are descended from ponies native to the region, crossed with Arabians and horses of Mongol descent. Throughout history, the Marwari has been used as a light cavalry horse. They were particularly noted for their loyalty to their riders and their bravery in battle. Currently, Marwaris are used for a variety of purposes such as light draught work and agricultural purposes. Many riders in India also find Marwaris to be wonderful sporthorses that are competitive in sports such as dressage, showjumping, and polo.
