I was on an event here in Salzburg and made some photos and uploaded them to commons. But I have no clue for a detailed description of these pictures or to put them in a narrow category. So it would be great if somebody could improve the descriptions and categories of these pictures of horse driving.
- Ask user:Pitke for help, Pitke is the guru/genius/whatever of commons for the horse photos. Montanabw(talk) 21:41, 8 May 2011 (UTC)
The illustration "Medieval four-horse team: leaders and wheelers" doesn't look very medieval to me. The drawing itself is obviously 19th century or later, and the equipment on the horses looks more complex than what was available before 1500. Can someone who knows more about horses than me recheck? Thanks! Bmwilcox (talk) 04:08, 16 May 2017 (UTC)
- Looks to be a book illustration, not a piece of artwork from the period. The source checks out as legit. The whippletree mechanism dates to the first century AD. The horse collar reached Europe circa 920 AD, and became universal by the 12th century, so the tech is possible. Montanabw(talk) 03:53, 19 May 2017 (UTC)
