Rajput Horse-rider

Philippe Gautier

1999 / 26 minutes / Production : 24 images / Broadcasting : France 3, Equidia, Air-France

In India today, Dileep Singh Rathore, descendant of a long lineage of Rajput warriors, presents to us the equestrian tradition in Rajasthan and its characteristic horses of the desert: the Marwadi horse.

From the heritage of a warrior past emerges the approach of a sport, also born in India: Polo

This capacity to transform ancestral values to convictions for the future is what makes the strength of India that’s waking up today. Nowhere else is this kind of strength so striking.
