Medieval Knight and Riding Horse are well protected with their detailed suits of armor. Nothing is going to bring these warriors down while headed into battle. The Medieval knight is one of three types of fighting men during the Middle Ages: Knights, Foot Soldiers, and Archers. Knights covered their bodies with plates of metal for protection. Plates of metal covered their chests, back, arms, and legs. Over time a Medieval Knights armor grew more effective. At first a knight wore chainmail to protect his body which then evolved into metal pieces covering his whole body. As the armor of the knight advanced, the knight also started to protect his horse with armor as well which was called barding. The horse was covered from head to tail with Shaffron on the head, Crinet on the neck, Crupper on the rear, and Peytral on the chest.
