Though they were made to look like cute baby elephants, Marwari horses were anything but. They were specially bred by combining the best characteristics of a number of other horse breeds. They were considered loyal, brave and they could withstand the heat of the desert.
This spectacular breed of horse allowed their masters to fight elephants! They dressed them up with fake elephant trunks. This made them look like baby elephants. Their enemies' elephants would instinctively not attack them, confusing them for their own babies.
