Horse Warriors India’s 61st Cavalry

This book is a dazzling portrayal by an acclaimed photographer who brings years of professionalism and commitment to his work.’
Michael Binyon - Leader Writer, The Times

Henry Dallal spent three years in Rajastan photographing one of the last remaining active horse-mounted regiments in the world to produce Horse Warriors, a scintillating impression of Indian horsemen and horsemanship.

A beautiful book that portrays a side of the Indian subcontinent few have seen before, Horse Warriors shows the pageantry of the annual Republic Day Parade, the competitive excellence of the international polo fields of Jaipur, the professional expertise of a cavalry regiment and much more.

In Horse Warriors, Henry's evocative photography expresses his uncanny understanding of horses and horsemen and his brilliant ability to photograph them; whether in the dusty traditional horse and camel fairs of the Thar Dessert, the cool Victorian interiors of the Babugarh Breeding Centre, or with the nomadic Nihang warriors mounted on India's indigenous Marwari horses.

The book won a bronze medal for most outstanding book at the Independent Publisher Book Awards (IPBA) in New York in 2009.

A lavishly produced book, with fabulous photography capturing the intricate detail, colour and splendor of India’s equine pageantry.Dan Hayes, Group Editor, The CCN magazine
 

With unequalled understanding of his subject, Henry Dallal captures the public and private world of the horsed regiment. Steeped in atmosphere and vivid with colour and movement, the kaleidoscope of images brings alive a world of chivalry in the modern age. The superb quality of this book reflects the excellence that the subject so rightfully deserves.Dr. Amin Jaffer, International Director of Asian Art, Christie’s
  

Witty, poignant and exuberant, Henry Dallal’s photographs wonderfully evoke all the colour and history of another age while also giving us a lively feel for a proud equine tradition that is still very much part of India today. Michael Binyon, Times Leader Writer
 

I am delighted and proud to see India’s equine tradition and heritage being shared with a wider, global audience through the very fine, nondigital photography of Henry Dallal.Vijay Mallya, MP (Rajya Sabha), Chairman - The UB Group
