The Potential Growth and Opportunities in Horse Keeping in India6

India has five indigenous horse breeds: Marwari, Kathiawari, Zanskari, Manipuri and Spiti. The Indian horses are now getting their due place among the well-known horse breeds of the world. The Department of Animal Husbandry in the ministry of agriculture has recently promoted a separate Marwari Horse Registration Stud Book Society to register all pure-bred animals, as per its own breed standards. The government also proposes to start such societies for the Kathiawari, Manipuri, Zanskari and Spiti breeds.The recent awareness spread and steps taken by the government to enhance the breeding of the Indian horses presents tremendous job opportunities for Stablemen or Stable Attendants.
