Is it easy to do in the north? Secondly, how much should I pay for one?

I do not know the answer but I was wondering why you wanted a horse in India?

I was going to buy one in Mongolia and just trek about, but its the wrong season. Secondly I just liek the idea of going around Rajistan in a horse :)

Craig,
It might sound fine when sitting in Glasgow, but bumping around Rajasthan by yourself via horse is just not practical or safe. Join a tour when in Rajasthan that uses horses and do it that way. Good Luck.

U need a camel to trek in Rajasthan, buying wouldnt be advisable. A good horse costs around 3000USD. If u wanna have a good horse trek u should visit Matheran, a small and beautiful hill station near Mumbai

Do hotels and other accomodation have facilities to cater for horses, in Rajasthan?

Horses tend not to live in hotels, probably why the long face.

Such facilities existed some 500 years ago, but in the current scenario only small pets may be allowed in hotels, but not the big ones like, horses and asses

But in the Westerns there is a place to tie them outside the hotels, and then somebody gives them hay and water, Walkitwils. I thought there might be something like that in Rajasthan.

Arif, there were such facilities here too, 500 years ago.
And there were several sh*t shovelers who lost their jobs, when cars became popular.
