The Horse Lord Shield is a solid functional shield made of 1/2” thick composite wood (which provides a smoother finish and stronger shield than plywood) with a beveled edge. Dual leather straps are used to secure the arm along the back. Hand painted with a horse motif around a central boss and finished with stainless steel studs around the rim. The shield has also been applied with several coats of varnish to further protect and preserve it from wear.
