Download Attachment Hi guys, I would like to seek some help in translating this page from a 300 years old Samurai book. This page has got something to do with horse equipment.
Does anyone knows what this page means?
I've found out that one of the term inside is 駄覆(だおい) "daoi". Google is not helping at the moment.
Seems like a pad that you'd insert underneath the saddle?
Please advise. Thank you very much!
Sorry to see that you have not found any help here. If the image is of a pad for under the saddle you have found something virtually unknown until recently. While pads that go on top of the saddle are known, these under saddle pads are not seen in any illustrations I know of. It is only recently that a couple of these have turned up but the Japanese name is not known. I have them listed as "kura zabuton" (saddle cushion).
