New personalised maps for horse riders

Great news for horse riders! Ordnance Survey has launched an online service where you can order individually printed maps centred on an area of your choice - whether that's a favourite ride, the yard where you keep your horse or a destination for a riding holiday.

The new OS Select service enables you to site-centre a 1:25 000 scale folded Explorer map on an area of your choice ensuring that everything you need to know is on one map so you never find yourself 'falling off the edge'! The Explorer map is an ideal companion for horse riders helping you easily locate riding stables, hidden bridleways, footpaths, local pubs and picnic sites. Detailed contours will even allow you to evaluate the difficulty of your route so you can select a challenging path to push you and your horse.

Each site-centred map can be supplied folded in a water-resistant clear plastic wallet or flat to display on a wall. For that extra personal touch you can even select your own title and front cover.

OS Select maps make an ideal treat for yourself or a great gift to guide a fellow horse rider on some of the rides you've discovered. If you have a friend who has recently moved to a new house or yard, an OS Select would be an essential guide for exploring their local area.

OS Select maps are also available in Ordnance Survey's Landranger Map series and maps of both scales can be ordered by logging on to or by telephoning 0845 200 2712. OS Select Landranger maps are priced at £15.99 each plus £2.50 posting and packing and OS Select Explorer maps are £16.99 plus £2.50 postage and packing.
