Below this text are remnants of horse trapping. They are Hunnish and from the 4-5th century. They were found in southwestern Russia. On the left, the big piece is called a Chamfron, which goes between the eyes of the horse. The two thin pieces of metal are bridle mounts. These would decorate the bridle. On the right, the gold tube is a Hunnish whip or nagaika. These horse trappings are made of gold, copper, and bronze. They are also studded with gems. This is really decorative trapping for a horse. I think this trapping would be used for a church celebration or for war. Today the horse trapping is probably a little less decorative. It would be expensive to use all of that gold, bronze, and gems on horse trappings.
