Saddle Pierced by Bullet-Holes

This would have been used by the cavalry to ride the warhorses needed for the battle. The red bag would have been used to carry things they needed like maps and bedding. The saddle’s design was based upon those used by the Prussian Cavalry, who were considered to be a part of one of the most technologically advanced armies in the 1790s. This saddle is a typical example of those introduced in 1796 for use throughout the heavy cavalry regiments of the British army.
