Kachhi Ghodi is one of the most famous dance forms accompanied by drummers in Rajasthan and an exemplary folk art form. It brings out the vivid hues and the rustic charms of rural life in Rajasthan. Kacchi Ghodi derives its name from the work Ghoodi meaning 'mare'. It is a sprightly dance where men and women don costumes look like horses and pretend to be cavalry soldiers or horsed bandits. The costume from hip down is a wooden horse and the footwork is coordinated with the beats of the drums and flutes to resemble the trotting movements of the horse rider.
Kacchi Ghodi is performed by men on dummy horses. Men wear elaborate costumes embellished with brilliant mirror-work and ride the dummy horses. The dummy horses used as prop are equally adorned with meticulous embroidery and mirrored-work. The dancers ride the dummy horses with swords in their hands. These dancers with swords move to the beats of drums and fifes.
