Another splendid addition! I see I'm going to have to get some more horseholders. Interesting history.

Thanks all. Horseholders are really interesting. Apparently dragoons were arranged in groups of 11 men, 10 to fight and one to hold the horses. Not being particularly horsey I would have thought holding on to 11 horses whilst people in the close vicinity were making lots of loud noises would be quite a tricky feat. But they threaded the reins of one horse onto another horse, who was attached to another horse and so on. Horseholder effectively only holds one horse, the other horses are held by the other horses.
