Baraat/Indian Wedding Tradition

The Hitching Company offers a white mare horse decorated with an authentic costume from India. The groom rides through the ceremony led by a costumed handler. Our horse is gentle and used to the music, drumming, and festivities.

If the groom would prefer to ride in a carriage, we can accommodate that also. The carriage is decorated with flowers and greenery and the horse also wears the traditional Indian costume.
