Rajputs were born to be horseback riders, and the tradition was strongly enforced in the medieval ages when the cavalry formed one of the most important flanks of the desert armies. Special horses were bred at the thikanas (aristocratic homes) of the Thakurs who served their kings with armies of horsemen. The Marwari horse is an indigenous species, hardy, agile and among the notables in world breeds. In addition, the Kathiawadi and Sindhi horses are also adept at traversing the desert country side.
