The Marwari Pony

The Marwari horse comes from the Marwar locale in Rajasthan, northwest of India.

The Marwari is thought to have been reared around the 12th century AD where it immediately turned into a most loved of the military family, the Rathores. The Rathores managed the Marwari area from their capital city of Jodhpur, west of Jaipur.

The British supported their own Arab decent ponies and related the Marwari with the “Indian standard”. Marwari ponies declined during the British time. By the mid-1990s, an administration study assessed that about 500 to 600 remained. This set off a battle to spare the Marwari, the Indigenous Indian pony breed. Associations were formed to spare the Marwari from annihilation, with rearing, examination and instruction programs, both with the government and private sector help.
