I did not know this but Peruivans in the past carried protective battle geat.  The incas indians would attempt to cut off the horse's tail so the horse would bleed to death. Then the spanish added the baticola, (cuppler) to protect their tails.

You are correct I spelled Crupper wrong.I read this article in Horse & Rider, January 2012 issue, page 54. I also never heard about the protective battle gear.  Please read the article if you have the opportunity.

HELLO,

FIRST OF ALL THE RIGHT WORD IS CRUPPER. I NEVER HEARD THAT ABOUT IT..USED AS PROTECTIVE BATTLE GEAR. 

THE OLD PERUVIAN SADDLE USED TO HAVE THE CRUPPER AND THE "GUARNICION" TO AVOID THAT SADDLE MOVE FORWARD OR BACKWARD WHEN THE HORSE GO DOWNHILL OR UPHILL.

THERE IS AN OLD PERUVIAN PAINTER NAMED PANCHO FIERRO HOW ILLUSTRATED THE LIVE OF  LIMA POPULATION IN HIS PAINTINGS;THERE YOU CAN SEE A LOT HORSES WITH OLD PERUVIAN SADDLES .

YOU CAN GOOGLE THE WORD PANCHO  FIERRO AND YOU CAN SEE SOME OF HIS WORKS.
