Though Marwari horses have a delicate look and they seem fancy, but they have been used in war and agriculture for centuries. According to historians, Marwari horses were commonly used by Sikh warriors during the 11th and 12th centuries. It is hard to say why Marwari horses were used in war; some breeders claim Marwari horses are great companions. Whereas there are rumors, Marwari horses were a symbol of pride and aggression; they were used for undermining the fear of enemies. Besides, it was a tradition for Rajas to own Marwari horses.
However, Marwari horses riding to wars resulted in a decline of this breed over time. Unfortunately, very little attention was paid to their rising extinction, and no Marwari horses existed outside India at that time. But it is said, Rathores were the first family to breed Marwaris for war. Later in the 13th and 14th centuries, Mongols launched multiple invasions on India, they took some Marwari horses with them. It is believed, Mongolians introduced Marwari horses to the World outside India. However, the Marwari breed outside India slightly deteriorated over centuries of evolution.
Marwari horses went extinct during the mid 20th century, and consequently, many Marwari horses were bred with other mutations. The crossbreeding helped in saving the bloodline, but it slightly impured it. As a result, pure Marwari horses remained extinct. In order to protect the bloodline, the Indian government banned the export of Marwari horses for a long time.
Today, there are roughly 1000 Marwari horses in India. While there are few outside India; most of those Marwari horses are in Pakistan, the USA, Oman, and Spain. The very few fanciers who posses pure bloodline either don’t sell it or if they do, they sell it for a very high price. Consequently, the price of Marwari horses remains high.
