The Marwari horse is a rare breed from the Marwar (now Jodhpur) region of Rajasthan, India. Rajasthan is in north India, near the border with Pakistan. They are very hardy and are known for their turned in ears. At a museum I visited in Rajasthan, they said the Marwari horse has the turned-in ears to prevent a sword from cutting off the tips in battle. These horses are a cross between sturdy and small Indian ponies and Arabian horses.
I got to see these horses at the Pushkar Camel Fair, which happens every year sometime in October or November in Pushkar, Rajasthan, India. The small village comes alive with people selling horses, camels and livestock and religious pilgrims coming for a Hindu festival. It was a sight to see!
