Question Marwaris?

So, I've recently become interested in the Marwari breed and was wondering if anybody on here owned one? Anybody have pictures or anything like that? Also if anyone has any general information on the breed, like temperament...? Or if anyone knows of any breeders? Any information would be greatly appreciated!

This site has a good basic description of all breeds: Breeds of Livestock - Horse Breeds

I have never seen or heard any of the breed in real life. They must be very rare.

In 1989 I spent a while in India, where these horses are the norm. I fell in love with these tough little horses. Their ears are incredible, with the finer ones twisting to the point where the tips touch.

I too love Marwaris, and I haven't come across many people who own one, they are very rare in North America. Better off to get one from over seas, but that would be too costly.

They are gaited, and they were bred in "royal" studs by the maharajah. They are in the same genetic group as Lusitanos and Peruvian Pasos! Lovely horses, but they are very, very fierce. They would be expensive to buy in India and Tibet even without transportation costs. You may also find it difficult to get them piro free. There are loads of videos of them on youtube.

None of the ones I saw in India were gaited. Even the poor cart drivers in the city had horses with the distinctive twisted ears, signaling their marwari blood. They are not just owned by the rich. As with American horse owners, anyone can have one. The richer people can simply have better bred ones. They simply are not that rare in India.

How do you mean fierce? Bad tempered? Or loyal, well trained battle horses? They are high strung (like the stereotyped arabian) but not bad tempered.

They are available in the US. One of the links I posted is a large Indian stud that happens to have a sister farm in Mass. You don't have to import them.

I'll never forget seeing these small tough horses pulling heavily loaded wagons through the streets of even large cities like Delhi and Bombay. Lean horses with unique twisted ear tips.
