attention all my tolkien fan-art/ historical costumery/gear enthusiasts!

I'm working on preliminary sketches for a large tolkien related painting that will involve two horsemen, I don't know much about horsemanship or historic horse tack (something I'm hoping to change one day) so i'm currently on the hunt for good reference photos/diagrams of prefferably late roman, dark age or early medieval saddles, bridles, harnesses, stirrups, ect (also i don't really know all of the components or terminology, so any help with that would be be great) I appreciate any leads/photos/really good websites or web-groups on the subject (preferably with photos) that anyone can direct me to, or any knowledge or general break down of the stuff you can give me (i know there are some very serious history buffs among my followers)

thanks all.

Howdy,
my name is Turner. I'm a fantasy illustrator living and working in NYC. I work mostly in pencil and pen, but have been trying to get into watercolor aswell.
(I also make medieval armor, in case anyone's interested :) )

come take a look, leave a comment. I'll be happy to hear from you

Sorry, I am throwing in some more stuff because I tend to think these things quite much, but how would you like the idea about Knights of Dol Amroth resembling more Greek/Eastern Cataphracts than European Knights? That would make them feel stranger and more alien (as Tolkien made Hobbits to resemble English a bit, so that the reader might become familiar with them and feel the world outside Shire alien and strange).

As a fan of Alan Lee, I didn't know if you had gotten this book.

yes, many years ago. a girlfriend gave it to me for my twentieth birthday, it has since remained consistently at the front of my bookshelf (i was just looking through it for about the millionth time only about a few minutes before seeing this post)
