    Horse Blessing Indianä

    You send a digital picture of the horse. I’ll make the video, like a priest laying the blessing around the image with flower garlands, swinging incense sticks, and giving a bag with banana and something like holy water. Please don’t think this is something super special or theatrical. It’s commonplace here and is done quite normally for hundreds every day. It might be impressive for you because it’s loud with so many people and children, very colourful, very normal, and surely very touching because everyone is there with deepest faith and reverence quite naturally.

    In our daily life, we live with all this supernatural stuff. Every morning, I perform a small ritual in front of the house, watering the temple with fresh water, burning incense sticks, and placing a few flowers—the Puja, the so-called daily blessing. This includes blessing the dog, the cats, the chickens, the cow, my horse, and the household members. I don’t apply red powder Kumkum and other ceremonies on the horse’s forehead because it’s too much for me early in the morning. I do it because it’s our culture, and it's somehow natural, and all the boys perform the Puja daily in our rural area. When my horse recovered from the snake bite, I went to three temples and had a thanksgiving blessing performed by the priests.

    We have specific temples for the blessing of animals. Hundreds of people go there daily and express their wishes, worries, and hopes. There's often a holy speaker. They read something in your soul, your thoughts of worries and troubles, and then make some remark about it. In the end, they give the blessing that everything will be fine.

    A week ago, I went to such a priest because I needed his blessing for something. Everyone, mom, dad, sister, grandparents, relatives, didn’t want me to buy a 200 CC motorcycle. I’m not yet 18 and don’t have a driver’s license. It's not a problem here in this very rural area. Still, they wanted me to ask the priest. I went with my grandfather to the temple in the mountains, and I was terribly afraid that the priest would say «No.» OMG, I was so happy when the very human holy priest gave his positive blessing for the purchase. Hurray!

    Tour through Rajasthanä

    Anyone traveling to India by December 2027 will receive a 10-day guided tour through the horse country Rajasthan from me and a local guide or horse expert. The Great Mughal Emperor Akbar from Marwar in North India had over 12,000 horses in his cavalry in the 16th century in that country. Impressive!

    The horse breed got the name from that region Marwar.

    We will discuss the details in advance. I will cover my travel, meals, and accommodation expenses. You would need to cover the costs for the local expert.

    You can also come as a pair, family, or group.

    This will be unforgettable!

    I would also be very excited about this trip. After all, my horse and the Marwari breed come from Rajasthan, North India, 2000 km away from me.
