Horse breeding has a new home - India

April 7, 2008

Horse breeding has a new home, India. There are already over 60 stud farms that breed thoroughbreds in the country, of which an estimated 1300 are race horses.

The fertile soil and green pastures in various parts of India are a natural advantage to breed racehorses.

This potential was exploited by the Brars in Punjab, who took up horse breeding way back in 1973 with just two mares and are now the proud owners of about 100 mares, half a dozen stallions, and 75 foals.
