The Long Riders Guild Academic Foundation
The world’s first global hippological study



The Chauvet-Pont-d'Arc Cave in France is a cave that contains what is believed to be the world's oldest known representational art.

The images are estimated to be between 27,000 and 32,000 years old. Hundreds of animal paintings have been catalogued, depicting at least 13 different species, including horses. The photograph of the Yakut horse (top) bears a striking resemblance to the Stone Age horse (bottom). 

Based on the facial similarities of the two horses seen left, it would appear that the descendants of the horse that existed 32,000 years ago are still to be found in Yakutia. For years the Long Riders’ Guild has been attempting to determine if anyone in Russia studied and documented the history of the Yakut horse. The search for this elusive equestrian evidence has at last been found!
