Blinders were used to prevent the horse from distractions by limiting its field of vision. Blinders help keep the horse from being distracted or frightened, especially in crowded streets. This "hood blinder" is made of leather, and was fitted over the horse's head, secured with buckles.

Blinders are also called "blinkers" and "winkers." They have traditionally used for both working horses and racing horses.
