Henry Dallal’s photography evokes here an age-old world where the horse reigns supreme. At the heart of this book is the mounted cavalry, a professional elite that embodies India’s history, upholding ceremonial pageantry and equestrian skill as part of the country’s armed forces. The 61st Cavalry is an extraordinary body of soldiers in that it is one of the world’s few remaining active mounted cavalry regiments. From the traditional horse and camel fairs in the Thar Desert to the cool Victorian interiors of Babugarh Breeding Crente; from the nomadic Nihang warriors mounted on India’s indigenous Marwari horses to the international polo fields of Jaipur; from the regiment’s operational duties on patrol to its ceremonial function at the annual Republic Day Parade, Dallal’s photographic record portrays a little-known aspect of modern India where past and present stand vividly together, as well as a unique insight into the day-to-day life of an active cavalry regiment. This beautiful book will appeal to all who have an interest in military history of a love of horses.

Book Description Henry Dallal, United Kingdom, 2009. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. 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.
