3rd Dragoon Guards

Mounted Officer in Full Dress, 1900

After the shabraque was discarded for full dress, the black sheepskin saddlecloth had a yellow edge to match the facings colour. Only the undress sabretache was worn at this time, with full dress gold lace straps (see Sabretaches). All his belts are gold as he is in full dress (see Pouchbelts). The breeches are dark blue with a single yellow stripe. The bridle has a white rope which replaced the metal chain at this time.
