Horses postage stamp from CYPRUS

Stamp Name:Horses
The Post of Cyprus began its new philatelic year by the issue of stamps featuring gorgeous horses.
In ancient time the horse was used for agricultural purposes and as a means of transport but also as a tool in war. It helped people spread to new areas and in the migration of entire peoples. Today, the horse's use as a means of transport in Europe has almost been eradicated. Horses are used for riding and in racing, in presidential and royal guards and in some cases by mounted police.
