There is a large number of breeds of horses in the world, each of which has its own destination.

The Stamp No. 1205 depicts the Trakehner horse originated in East Prussia. Breeding scientists created a strong and hardy breed for the needs of cavalry. Today it is the only half-breed horse which is reared in purity.

The Stamp No. 1206 depicts the New Kirgiz horse, which originated from the old Kirgiz breed. It has retained all its best qualities (stamina, unpretentiousness) and acquired additional advantages: increase in height and weight, as well as improved speed characteristics in sport races.

The project was prepared in cooperation with the Republican Centre of Olympic Training of Equestrian Sports and Horse Breeding.
