This is one of a series of sessions on the medieval horse, dedicated to the exploration of medieval equestrian equipment, its form and function, and the ways in which horses were worked in the Middle Ages. The papers cover the time range from the early medieval to the high medieval periods, focusing, among other things, on the equipment and training for horses used in war. The papers are informed by different disciplinary approaches, from military studies to archaeology and experimental archaeology.
