Description
 +
    You can put armour on your mount to give it more protection from     
 +
    attacks,  at the cost of increasing its burden and having to repair 
 +
    the armour.                                                         
 +
 +
    There are five armour pieces:                                             
 +
    the shaffron, which protects the head;                                   
 +
    the crinet, which protects the neck;                                     
 +
    the peytral, which protects the chest;                                   
 +
    the flanchards, which protect the stomach;                               
 +
    and the crupper, which protects the back, lower back, and tail.           
 +
 +
    Horses can (and must) wear horseshoes, which protect their hooves but
 +
    don't count for the set bonus.                                       
 +
                                                                         
 +
    Mount armour can be refitted in a smithy to be wearable by a different
 +
    type of mount - for example, camels rather than horses.  It can also 
 +
    be restyled, also in a smithy, to change its style to a different   
 +
    style at random, but this has a chance to fail and destroy the armour
 +
    piece.  More skill in crafts.smithing.black.armour reduces this     
 +
    chance, but never to zero.

Horses may wear certain kinds of armour. Since horses have different bodies from humans, they use different layers and their body parts have different to hit % chances.

Be advised that these armour pieces are no substitutes to your mount having higher combat stats: strength and intuition.

Armours

Please be advised that to hit % chances are based on insufficient data. More data on body parts hit with focus=none from humans on horses are needed to get a more representative average.

Acquisition

Iron horseshoes are purchased from the Ridings Bit Shop in north Ankh-Morpork.

The other armours are obtained from the horses that accompany knights on the roads of the Sto Plains.

Styles

With the exception of iron horseshoes, horse armor comes in various styles. Styles include:

  • articulated
  • blackened
  • damascene
  • darkened
  • filigreed
  • gilded
  • gleaming
  • gothic
  • horned
  • inlaid
  • lightweight[1]
  • old-fashioned
  • ornate
  • reinforced
  • riveted
  • spiked
  • streamlined
  • tempered
  • winged
  1. not actually lighter

Wearing a set of five armour pieces that are all of the same style grants a set bonus: some extra protection over the mount's entire body - including the areas that are not covered by the armour.

Frazyl's Hon the dark horse's full set of armour settles into a perfect fit, closing the gaps between each piece as if they belonged together.

Restyling

You can restyle a horse armour piece in a smithy using crafts.smithing.black.armour for success, but there's always the possibility of it being destroyed. (from the help file)

Even if you succeed, the new style is randomly chosen.

You need to pay to restyle, the money is gone even if you destroy the piece.

  • You think you'll need about &&&&&&&&&&&+3999 LC 2|3|9 1/4 to pay for the materials for forging.
Success
restyle old-fashioned peytral
You heat the old-fashioned iron peytral in the forge and begin the complex and arduous task of reshaping it into a new style.
Despite a few close calls, you manage to finish the restyling without damaging the winged iron peytral and breathe a sigh of relief.
Failure
restyle peytral
You heat the streamlined iron peytral in the forge and begin the complex and arduous task of reshaping it into a new style.
Halfway through your work, in a moment of carelessness, one of your hammer strikes lands wrong on the heated plating and shatters the streamlined iron peytral.  What remains is unrecoverable.
