Marwari History

The Marwari breed comes from the Northwestern areas of India. They are notably brave and can be extremely loyal to their masters. They have quite a reputation for being warriors, ones that refuse to leave a conflictive situation if asked to. In fact, these creatures have been known to only leave a battle area if they won the fight, they were doted to carry away their injured solider, or if they were if killed as a result of defending their master. This all further explains their ways and the methods in which they operate solely on the adoration of their owners. Also widely popular in the area of Rajasthan, this breed is said to have some form of Arabian bloodlines in them as well. It comes as no surprise to their many followers as they are notably striking in appearance, as well as stature. Only royal family members high up in the Indian reforms were able to own the Marwari horses decades ago. They also survived a time of almost virtual extinction with the help of the Rajput families during the early nineteen hundreds. Today, they are still used as work horses and defensemen.
