Horse barding

The Armoury’s iconic and well-loved horse mannequin has been dressed in spectacular new parade barding made in early 16th-century German style to match its armour as well as that of the knight, the red and white colours recalling the Fitzwilliam coat-of-arms. Designed and created by Historic Enterprises of Ramona, California, be sure to look out for this splendid new barding, made possible through Marlay Group funding.
