Synopsis

Horse Warriors India's 61st Cavalry by Henry Dallal, Henry Dallal

This beautiful book shows a side of the Indian subcontinent that few have seen before. Award-winning photographer Henry Dallal spent three years in Rajasthan photographing one of the last remaining active horse-mounted regiments in the world to produce a scintillating impression of Indian horsemen and horsemanship. But Horse Warriors shows so much more than the pageantry of the annual Republic Day Parade; the competitive excellence of the international polo fields of Jaipur; and the professional expertise of a cavalry regiment. Whether in the dusty traditional horse and camel fairs of the Thar Desert, cool Victorian interiors of the Babugarh Breeding Centre, or with the nomadic Nihang warriors mounted on India's indigenous Marwari horses, Henry Dallal's evocative photography shows (as did his earlier book Pageantry and Performance on Britain's Household Cavalry) an uncanny understanding of horses and horsemen and a brilliant ability to photograph them.
