Punjabis’ passion for horses since the time of Guru Hargobind Singh Ji have allowed horse riding to become an integral part of the history and psyche of Punjab. This short movie presented by Dhillon Marty Foundation explores the comeback of equestrian sports in Punjab through examining the rich Sikh traditions, and how appreciation for horsemanship is present even in modern Punjab.

The movie gains access to interviews with Punjab Public School, Department of Animal Husbandry Punjab, Punjab Equestrian Association, Punjab Police Academy, and Punjabi Stud Farms. It also contains footage of the festival of Holla Mohalla, Polo, and Tent Pegging in Punjab. The movie highlights the equestrian skills of Punjab’s Youth.
