horse furniture


Here is a selection of militaria from this category:

[ Show all ]
militaria item Pair of iron spurs
- British
These are heavy duty military/hunting examples in polished iron. As the 19th century wore on, the shanks got shorter and tended to lose their sepentine shape. The buckle was normally worn on the outside instep of the boot, secured by a leather strap or small chain under the instep, with another one running over it.

militaria item Iron bridon, snaffle or jointed bit
- European
This is from the Charlemagne era. According to A. Demmin (the author of an established book on arms and armour, published 1894), there is a similar example in the Copenhagen Museum. It measures nearly 19cm across.

militaria item Early medieval jointed horse bit
- European
This form of bit would have been worn by military and civil alike throughout the period of the Crusades. In a modified form, this snaffle bit is still in use today. It is of iron lapweld construction, the central elements being hollow.

militaria item Iron stirrup
- German
This is a good example of an early stirrup from the mid-16th century. It was found on the outskirts of Edinburgh some years ago and is, in all probability, of either German or perhaps Austrian origin. The motifs are largely of the shell variety, typical of this period on ironwork like sword hilts and other horse furniture.

militaria item Hinged iron rowel spur
- European
This somewhat damaged piece is a rare survivor of a strange design which resurfaces in the 18th and 19th centuries in silver, in England at any rate. The rowel spur first appeared in the 14th century and normally had fixed arms, as opposed to hinged ones.
