Items of horse harness found in Berel mound

Zainolla Samashev

The term «harness» we use in the sense that it is horse harnesses, for horse riding. It consists of headband, a saddle and its periphery — the breast belt and the girth with the buckle (or without).

Berel bridles horse is traditional and includes side, forehead and muzzle straps, abundantly decorated with a variety of pendants, made in the form zoomorphic images, complemented by floral motifs. Bits are mostly wrought with simple iron, little bronze.
