Chamfron, horse's face protector, 11th century

This  chamfron will be made-to-measure according to the real head size of your horse. Before you place your order, please take measurements of your horse according to the picture above:

  1. circumference blind the mouth
  2. circumference underneath the cheekbones
  3. length from the mouth to behind the ear
  4. length behind the ear up to the top of the head (vertex)

The chamfron originated in ancient Greece, but vanished from use until the twelfth century when metal plates replaced boiled leather as protection for war horses. The basic design of the chamfron remained stable until it became obsolete in the seventeenth century, although late examples are often notable for engraved decoration. A chamfron extended from the horse's ears to its muzzle. Flanges often covered the eyes. In an open chamfron, the eyes received no protection. Hinged extensions to cover the jowls were commonly used for jousting tournaments.
