Object Description
A metal chain bridle decoration made of circular chain links. The links at both ends of the chain are larger than the rest, as is the link in the middle.
Origin
The bridle is a piece of safety equipment, responsible for holding the bit and the reins in place so that you can communicate with your horse while riding. Riders often decorate the bridle with metal ornamentations.
