This one was for the 50th anniversary of the Penny Postage. Unfortunately torn, but a very nice destination.

Perhaps the item above could also be posted on the train thread.

In the meantime here is a horse with a difference. It is a sculpture and the stamp was issued in September 2010.

That is a statue of King William III in Dublin. Perhaps you can find some information about his horse from Google.

KevinHedley - Nice. One could probably build an interesting topical stamp collection about mounted knights. Meanwhile, back to the the SPORTING LIFE: Steeplechase, issued by Poland on May 24, 1967, Scott No. 1503.

The sporting life (continued): Steeplechase, issued by Russia (USSR) on August 1, 1960, Scott No. 2368, SG No. 2475. This stamp is the highest value of a 10-stamp Olympics set.

Thanks for postal stationary with Seabiscuit. More stationaries!!!

about Poland and USSR sports stamps - I think it isn't Steeplechase. Thise is Olimpic issues, but Steeplechase is not included in the Olympic Games - It is show-jumping in my opinion :)

fanny horse - Glad you liked my Seabiscuit so much. Unfortunately, I don't think I have any more horse related postal stationary in my collection to scan and share. I believe that Steeplechase was a part of equestrian eventing through the 2000 Olympics; however, eventing was modified and shortened starting in 2004. Here is a URL with the details: https://discovereventing.com/?q=node/67

Here are images of one more related stamp from my collection, Equestrian, issued by Germany (DDR) on September 15, 1965, Scott No. 789.
