- the land of the Rajputs, is known for its kings, fearless warriors and
beautiful women. It's also known for its forts, palaces and temples
which are a reminder of the glorious past. Kingdoms were carved and
established by the Rajputs on horseback, while swords were stained with
enemy blood. Horses were highly priced and a Rajput warrior would give
anything to own a goodhorse.
Great care was taken to breed
horses and to keep a clean and pure lineage. The result of many years of
dedication and hard work helped create breeds like the Marwari,
Kathiawadi and the Sindhi, each having its own distinct characteristics
and bred solely for the purpose of war. These horses were noted for
their stamina and fierce loyalty to their masters. With these gallant
steeds, the Rajputs became famous worldwide. There is an old saying;
" If God didn't create the horse,
he wouldn't have
created the Rajputs "
