Folk artistes performing Kachi Ghodi Dance on the street during a festival in Rajasthan.

The Kachi Ghodi Dance In Rajasthan, India is performed on dummy horses. Men in elaborate costumes- red turbans and dhotis and kurtas ride the well decorated dummy horses. With naked swords in their hands, these dancers move rhythmically to the beating of drums and fifes while a singer narrates the exploits of the Bavaria bandits of Shekhawati. This dance is always performed by men.
