Really nice :bravo:
Was a plume worn with the mane? Or what was the little pocket on the side for?
Best wishes, Sandy

Thanks James.
This is the mounted police, the foot police had the similar helmet, but no tail.
I prefere this one.

Very nice indeed.

One of mine (dragon) with the red plume in place. The plume for your Gendarme à Cheval should be blue, white and red, like the French flag !!

Best

Excellent helmet! Even I would look good in that. 😊 Style wise, I see more of an Alexander the Great influence, at least from my perspective.
