Tethering chain : Light Horse units
Heavy gauge steel link tethering chain with T bar and two oval sections with a voided cross piece in the centre so that the chain can be adjusted to a suitable length.
In Australian light horse units, from the First World War until the beginning of the Second World War, tethering chains were worn attached to the jowl piece of the bridle, in place of the standard issue head rope, by horses who had a tendency to chew through, or untie, the rope.
