"Cavalryman with his saddled War-horse" Terracotta Army Tip by Willettsworld

Terracotta Army, Xi'an: 161 reviews and 357 photos


116 similar cavalrymen with their horses were found in Pit 2. Horses were strictly selected from HeQu and were well trained. The horse is shown with a saddle decorated with girth and crupper, but no stirrup. The cavalryman wears a knee-length robe, an armoured vest and tight-fitting trousers. Beneath the belted waist, the robe appears full with pleats and folds. The small tight hat is fastened under the chin. He holds the reins in one hand and a crossbow in the other.
