Leather Chamfrons

Do you often attend the historical battle re-enactments on horseback? Sword and horse were parts of equipment of every medieval knight. Knight and horse needed some armour to protect them against injuries. Also horse’s head had to be protected among other things. Therefore leather chamfrons were invented.

Horse’s armour and chamfrons (protection of horse’s head) were used already in ancient Greece. They were made from leather until the 12th century, and then were replaced by plate armour. Shape of chamfrons was almost unchanged. Chamfrons were outdated and unnecessary in the 17th century. Therefore, especially lavishly decorated horse’s armour were made and were used only for festive occasions.

Our equipment for horses (leather chamfrons included) can be used during various historical battle re-enactments, theatre performances, film screenings and other historical events. Don’t hesitate to choose the right chamfron for your horse!

Besides leather chamfrons you will find here also next necessary equipment for medieval knights and their horses: beautiful caparisons, horsemen armour, horsemen weapons, riding boots or whips.
