Horse Armour is armour for stallions. Throughout the late Middle Ages as armour insurance for knights ended up being more adequate, their mounts ended up being targets. This tactic was viable for the Scots at the Battle of Bannockburn in the fourteenth century when steeds were murdered by the infantry and the English at the Battle of Crécy in the fourteenth century where toxophilite shot stallions and ample infantry executed the French knights after they were gotten off. Barding improved as a reaction to such occasions.
