A fantastic map, originally published in 1936, showing the countries of origin of 30 breeds of horse, including breeds of horse (the Darley Arabian and Godolphin Barb) that would be bred to become the modern racing Thoroughbred breed.
The map itself contains lots of notes on the origins of different horse breeds, and general horsey facts.
There are lovely vignettes of each horse breed, including vital statistics like their height in hands, weight, and the year/century of their foundation.
This map looks great at all sizes: 12x16 inches (31x41cm), 18x24 inches (45.5x61cm) and 24x36 inches (61x91.5cm), but it looks even better when printed large.
I can create beautiful, large prints of this map up to 70 inches (180cm). Please get in touch if you're looking for larger, customised or different framing options.
The model in the listing images is holding the 18x24 inches (45.5x61cm) version of this map.
Take a look at the detailed images and try to spot your favourite breed! Feel free to message me if you want to confirm if a certain horse or country is shown on this map.
This would make a wonderful birthday, housewarming or Christmas gift for someone interested in horses, or who is perhaps interested in the origins of different horse breeds.
This map is available as a giclée print on acid free archival matte paper, or you can buy it framed. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that suits most aesthetics. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame colour or material. My frames are glazed with super-clear museum-grade acrylic (perspex/acrylite), which is significantly less reflective than glass, safer, and will always arrive in perfect condition.

I use a unique process to restore my maps that is massively time consuming and labour intensive. Hunting down the original maps can take months. I use state of the art and eye-wateringly expensive technology to scan and restore the maps. As a result, I guarantee my maps are a cut above the rest - that's why I can offer a no-quibble refund.
Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (200cm, 6.5ft+) and I can frame and deliver them to you as well, via special oversized courier. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
