terry's terret ring


A terret is a metal loop on a horse harness, guiding the lines and preventing them from becoming tangled or snagged on the harness.

The word terret may also be used for other metal loops for attaching ropes or chains, such as the ring on a dog collar. The word derives from the Old French toret or touret, meaning small and round.

Bronze terrets from horse harness are a common archaeological find from the European Iron Age (covering the Celtic period), sometimes with decoration.
