From its origin in the working horses of Lanarkshire in the early 19th century, in the last 200 years the Clydesdale has been exported from Scotland to locations all over the world. Having survived near-extinction at the hands of mechanisation in the middle of the 20th century, today they are found in increasing numbers and team and single draught horses working the land, as well as popular riding horses, giving them a whole new image. Here this iconic Scottish breed is put into context in relation to its development, social history and popular culture both in the UK and abroad. The Clydesdale's extraordinary comeback is also investigated, and the international band of enthusiasts and breeders who made this possible.
