From harem belt to horse harness

Joyce Mueller, SCA and Das Pferde Hall member, recently had the opportunity to examine and recreate a piece of authenic horse armor, a leather and metal strap worn around the horse's neck, once thought to be a harem girl's slave belt. Her project to recreate the piece is online.

Joyce, Anna in the SCA, had the opportunity to work with Steve Santini from the Canadian cable TV show Deals from the Dark Side which featured the artifact in Episode 11, The Harem Belt.
