A Scarlet Throat Plume or Beard for a Horse

This is a thick plume of scarlet horsehair.
It is suspended from a brass globe with spiral decoration.
It has its original tan leather strap with brass buckles.

I believe it would have been worn under the throat of an officer's charger, but I do not know which regiment
