Horse Armor at the Yale University Art Gallery

As I mentioned in a previous post, the family recently visited the Yale University Art Gallery, which has a very rich collection of art and artifacts, spanning centuries. This interesting exhibit displays horse armor circa 200 A.D. I think it is interesting to compare this armor with that on display at The Met. I don't know if there are any tack makers out there looking to recreate this type of horse armor, or any historians who find the horse's role in history fascinating, but just in case, here are several photos.
