CRUPPER. A loop of leather put under a horse's tail, passed over a roller behind the saddle, and fastened by a buckle, to prevent the saddle from slipping forward, and thereby throwing the rider on the neck of the horse. The construction of level roads has thrown the crupper out of fashion.
Harewood, Harry. A Dictionary of Sports. London: T. Tegg and son, 1835.
