Abstract :
All known examples of armorial horse furniture held on the Norfolk Sites and Monuments Record, with the provenance of the vast majority accurately recorded, have been brought together and 246 examples are illustrated. Arms are attributed with local, national and European connections, and changes in form and decoration are analysed, resulting in a revision of some conventional dating. One of the most interesting outcomes of the study is the indication that the heraldic decoration of horse furniture got underway during the second and third quarters of the 12th c., somewhat earlier than has previously been generally accepted. The late 13th and early 14th cs. saw the maximum popularity of enamelled pieces and thereafter a slow decline set in. ;
