The word Kachchhi Ghodi refers to the horse costume wore on the waist of the performer. It is a combination performance by the dancers, singers and the musicians. The dancers wear white kurta and colourful turban and tie the imitation of horse costume in their waist. The shell of the costume is made of papier-mache to resemble a horse supported by a bamboo structure. The dummy does not have legs and is covered with bright coloured fabric with mirror–work embroidery. The dancers perform with musical bells tied to the feet on the rhythm of the songs accompanied by flute and drums.
Tales of Bhanwariya bandit is narrated in the songs and the dancers resembling as warriors on horseback participate in mock fight with blunt sword. Kachchhi Ghodi dance has become the symbol of Rajasthani culture. The bright embellished mare costume brightens the sight of any traditional and festive procession in Rajasthan with the unique form of dancing by the Kachchhi Ghodi dancers.
