A decorative horse bridle, heavily beaded canvas. The device when laid flat looks like a pair of cravats, rounded ends at the bottom rosettes at the top, joined by a wide band which would fit across the horse's head. Design of white ground with alternating black and white border in lazy stitch, and three black buffalo, increasing in size as descending down the length, two buffalo heads and a buffalo standing right profile. The left rosette is of a bison head, but the right rosette is a replacement and is a stylized sun, a red circle on a white ground. Buckskin thongs at base of "cravats" and tops.
