The Armored Horse in Europe, 1480-1620
The group of armored equestrian figures forming the centerpiec e of the permanent arms and armor exhibition has, for almost a century, been one of the most popular and dramatic areas of the Metropolit an Museum. Aside from the bards (complete horse armors of plate) displayed on the figures, the Museum has many important examples in its reserve collection that are rarely shown, often unpublishe d, and largely unknown even to specialist s. In fact, armor for the horse has generally received much less scholarly attention than that designed for the rider, this volume being the first exclusivel y devoted to the subject.
