Mission Statement:

"A non profit making organisation working towards International recognition of, and dedicated to the improvement

and preservation of, the Marwari and Kathiawari

horses of India."

" ...bred to 'lift the heart in battle'

and please the eye"

 

There are five breeds of horses identified by the Indian Government as being indigenous to India: Marwari, Kathiawari,

Manipuri, Spiti, and Zanskari

These breeds are currently on the

restricted list for export.

Therefore, there are no Indian breed horses in the UK at present.

Our Mother society is:

INDIGENOUS

HORSE SOCIETY

OF INDIA

About

We are the UK Chapter of the Indigenous Horse Society of India. After many trips to India to see these horses in their native surroundings, at the request of the IHSI, a group of like minded individuals formed the Friends, with the aim of helping these special breeds to flourish in the future.
