Original Civil War Issue Crupper
Original Civil War Issue Crupper – A crupper is a strap buckled to the back of a saddle and looped under the horse’s tail to prevent the saddle or harness from slipping forward. This crupper is a Civil War period issue example, in excellent condition. It is both maker marked and Federal Inspector marked. Although we used to see these on a regular basis, they are no longer showing up with much regularity. All Federal cavalrymen and officer’s used this type of crupper.
