Abstract

The equipment of a riding horse is a key element in the material culture of nomadic pastoralists, very informative in terms of the ethnic and cultural history of various nomadic groups of the Scythian, Hunno-Sarmatian, and Old Turkic periods, when horses were buried with their owners. This equipment is highly relevant to assessing the age of the burial. We describe wooden saddletrees from a Hunno-Sarmatian Age cemetery Yaloman II in the Altai and compare them with similar fi nds from other places. Technological features of cantle, front, and bars are assessed, the tools needed to make them are evaluated, technological operations involved in assembling the saddletree are listed, and a graphic reconstruction of the wooden saddletree is proposed.
