Traditional Decorated White Horses and Carriages
For South Asian/Indian Weddings Baraat and Vidai
Our Horse Costumes and Matching Umbrellas are Imported Directly from India.
.


The word Baraat is a Hindi word meaning "a marriage procession".

In north Indian communities it is customary for the bridegroom to travel to the bride's house on a white horse, accompanied by his family members.

This often becomes a huge procession, with its own band, dancers, and budget.

The groom and his horse are covered in finery and do not usually take part in the dancing and singing; that is left to the "baraatis" or people accompanying the procession.

The term "baraati" is also used to describe any invitee from the groom's side.

The baraat headed by a display of fireworks is usually accompanied by the rhythm of the dholak or melam.

 

The Baraat reaches a special meeting point, and the elders of both the families meet and welcome the groom with garlands and aarati.

Aarati is a Hindu ritual, in which a devotional song is sung to develop the highest love for God.

"Aa" means "towards", and "rati" means "the highest love for God" in Sanskrit. Aarti or Arti is also a common name for Hindu girls.

The noise and excitement of an Asian wedding, the Asian wedding music, the amazing sound of the dhol drummers, combined with the wedding crowds, and fireworks may cause horses at the Indian wedding to shy and rear.

Our horses are at home in the extremely exciting atmosphere of an Asian wedding.

Our White Wedding Horses enable the Asian groom to ride in style with composure and elegance to meet his Asian bride at the baraat for their BIG DAY!

We offer a white horse and carriage for  "the Ghori" decorated in traditional Indian wedding accessories, which include a beautifully decorated red and gold embroidered cloth outfit.

By transporting your Indian bridegroom to his wedding in this fashion will show, his power, community standing, and wealth as he arrives in style.

The large traditional decorated umbrella is also of course available to keep with the tradition of style and power, and to ward away the evil spirits.

The Ghori is as important as the Baraat itself, at a traditional Asian wedding.

Should anyone in the New Jersey area have a need for a truly special and unique traditional Indian wedding with a beautifully decorated stunning white horse for a "Baraat" or horse and carriage for the " the Ghori" please contact us by phone or e-mail to reserve your date.

Traditionally the white horse is a female (mare) as opposed to a male (stallion) for the reason that female horses are more docile than male horses which is certainly true. These days we know that castrated male horses (gelding) are much quieter and easier to handle during the Indian Wedding ceremony. Female horses go through hormonal changes during mating seasons are too sensitive and jumpy to use effectively. For this reason most of the horses used for the Indian ceremonies are geldings. Our primary concern is that the groom reaches the ceremony quietly and safely.

Hi Tania,

Thank you very much for your help with our wedding on June 11th.

The horse and the gentleman that helped take care of the horse did a very nice job, and we have wonderful photos of the event.

All of our guests had a great time, and luckily the weather held up for our Baraat procession.

Thank you for your help, and I hope things are well with you.

Sincerely,

Sunit
