Comments: The "Calormene noble's saddle" is a costume inspired by C.S. Lewis's book "The Horse and His Boy". The Calormenes love lavish adornments. The jewels and metal work show that the owner is wealthy. Since Calormene nobles often dye their beards red, the large red tassels are meant to show that this horse belongs to a ranking nobleman. The decorative "shields" show that this is a war horse and the high cantled saddle supports the rider during battle.
