We can provide you with posters and information leaflets according to your needs, we are also available for Talks / Slideshows, so to discuss further please Contact Us.
There are occassions where we are invited to take part in a large event, perhaps with a trade stand or with an invitiation to bring the horses over from India for display purposes (eg. Queen's Diamond Jubilee 2012 at Windsor), this all needs funding so please Contact Us if you can help in any way.
Donations are always gratefully received!

Bit Delivery Trips
For those that want to see our work first hand as well as experience the Marwari horses in their homeland, please consider coming on one of our Bit Delivery Trips in Rajasthan, Gujarat or the Punjab districts of Northern India. We usually combine these trips with a horse safari (riding Marwari horses of course!) but non-riders are most welcome to come too and can take part in the whole India experience along with the rest of the group.
We usually are a group size of between 6-8, of varying ages and riding abilities. We try and have one trip a year and they are usually two weeks in duration, following a set itinerary that gives a good mix of riding, culture & sightseeing, but with the main aim of distributing the bits to the rural indigenous horse owners along our way. Members get priority notice and booking, if this sounds appealing to you, do Contact Us for details of our next trip.

WHITE MUGHALS by William Dalrymple.
A tragic story of love crossing boundaries, well researched and very much worth reading.
