    Any Cavalry Horse Equipment Experts? Photos Added

    I picked up probably the oddest addition to my collection today rather unexpectedly. Spotted some old leather straps in a large bin at an antique festival today and grabbed the end of what I thought might be a rifle sling. Out came a US Cavalry bridle in fair condition, dated 1917. Wasn't positive what it was as I never saw one before but I recognized the eagles on the rosettes as the US Army emblem and took a chance on it for $20. Leather is supple, needs cleaned but could probably still be used. Some minor age cracking. Brass and copper has dark patina too it.

    Cleaning? Yes? No? and to what extent. I figure the leather at least deserves something. Brass and copper probably just a light wipe down.

    The bit is marked Made in Englandicon and "Never Rust". Can't quite make out the manufacture of the leather. Middle line is 1917, bottom line is L.N.O. Top line looks to be B & D CO or B & R CO. Is complete but does not have the reins attached. Further research leads me to believe bit may not be original to the set but I really don't know.
