DESCENDED FROM THE GODS

They have curled ears and you can feel their impressive presence long before you see them. The Marwari is an old and rare horse breed, only found in India. Their days as war horses are over, but the loyal, strong and persevering character still shines through their brilliant appearance. Some people believe these horses are descended from the gods and their breeding history goes back until the 12th century. Let's explore the legendary world of the Marwari and meet all kind of different horses on this photographic adventure!

TRAVEL TO THE LAND OF WONDERS

Boost your equine photography skills while exploring a wondrous culture

EXPAND YOUR HORIZON

THE SOUL OF MARWARIS

Boost your photography skills by learning from one of the best equine photographers of the world how to create emotional and soulful photos. Lots of sessions are planned to present the versatility of the Marwari in portrait and freedom in breathtaking locations such as traditional architecture, mysterious Banyan trees of an old Maharadscha Lodge, in water and varying desert landscapes. The true essence and power of this breed shows in the sand dunes, where it was originally breed for and feels mostly at home. Additionally we will have group sessions of post production where I will share my workflow in retouching.

MAGICAL CULTURE

India hosts too many wonders and magic to just focus on horses. The journey will start at the date of Diwali, which is one of the biggest festivals in Hindu culture. "Diwali" means rows of lighted lamps and we will join the traditional celebrations. Furthermore you will have the chance to visit a Leopard sanctuary, famous forts and castles, shop on traditional spice and textile markets and explore temples. It comes naturally to also offer a trip to one of the 7 world wonders and UNESCO heritage - The Taj Mahal. All touristic trips are optional for you and will be discussed with the group.

ACCOMMODATION & FOOD

As a small group we travel around Rajasthan to shoot horses at the most beautiful locations. You will share double rooms in beautiful hotels or traditional houses and will also stay in a luxury camp in the middle of the desert There you will have the chance to ride on Marwaris through the desert ... doesn't this sound like a dream to you?
During the tour we will eat delicious traditional food to complete the cultural experience. The meals are suitable for a vegetarian and vegan diet.

WE WANT THIS TO BE SPECIAL

My cooperation partner www.ridinginindia.com (visit Instagram here) has a lot of experience organising trips for horse and culture lovers in India. Together we put a lot of effort into planning this special tour and want it to be a trip you will never forget.
