This curved case is made of dark tan leather.
It has brass billets and buckles.
There is a small pocket inside the case which would have held horseshoe nails.
The sleeve or "frog" on the front would hold a sword scabbard.
The two short straps would attach to the D rings of the saddle on the near side, and the long strap would loop forward around the girthstraps.
This particular design is a Mark III Officer's horseshoe case which was introduced in 1903.
It is in very good condition with a nice patina.
There are no maker's marks, dates or ordnance arrows.
(not including long strap) : 6½ inches (16.5cm) long x 6½ inches (16.5cm) wide
