Object Description

A medieval horse bridle made of hand-forged iron. It is composed of two free-running rings to the cheeks, and a central bar, which is made from two adjoining pieces and attaches the two cheekpieces together.

A snaffle is the simplest and most usual type of bit used in horse riding. It consists of a bit mouthpiece with a ring on either side, and acts by applying direct pressure.

Date: Circa 14th-15th century AD
