Hire one of our traditional Asian wedding horses for your Baraat. As well as offering the UK's finest musicians and entertainers, we have met many other types of wedding suppliers including companies who specialise in decorated horses at events where our acts have been booked.
Arrive in style for your Baraat in a beautifully decorated horse with a professional handler and matching umbrella. Children from your family will usually be allowed to sit on the horse for photo opportunities! Asian wedding horses are very popular for Hindu and Sikh weddings, the Groom is led to the marriage venue in a procession known as the Baraat.
In Sikh Tradition, the Groom arrives wearing a safa (turban) while carrying a kirpan (sword). He is accompanied by members of his family, friends and his groomsmen (baraatis). Arriving on a Ghodi (white horse) is still a very popular tradition for Indian families in the UK and we can also offer horse drawn carriages for the Bride's arrival or for the couple to leave the venue together. Nowadays many Asian Grooms will travel to the venue in a luxury car and then ride the horse for the final part of the journey.
Dancing Horses for Weddings The Horse Dance is a traditional part of Punjabi culture and is performed at weddings and local festivals especially in rural areas. These horses are not ridden but are trained to dance whenever they hear the sound of the dhol being played. If you are looking to book both the dancing horse and the Groom's decorated horse then we can offer a great package price for the 2 horses. Punjabi dancing horses are usually black or white female horses with Ghungroos (bracelets of bells - usually red) tied to the front legs of the horse to produce a very beautiful rhythmic sound. Once your Ghodi has been booked, you will also need to hire our Dhol Drummers or Baja Band to make your entrance complete.
