Early 13th Century OLD Prussian (Pruzzen) Horses

Does any one know where I can see a picture of the horses (with its riding gear) that were used by the pagan OLD Prussian (Pruzzen) warriors of the early 13th Century.
I have tried many National museums bordering the Baltic but to no avail.

* I need some fairly accurate representation for a painting I am commissioning.

There might be carvings, paintings or bas reliefs, but if you've already contacted museums and they can't help you, I doubt anyone on this board can. Try Google Images.

The only thing I can suggest is that rather than trying to find images of the horses with tack look for paintings, etc., of battles, ceremonies, famous personages from that time period and location - the models you want may show up in the background.

Have you looked up the Teutonic Knights, who took over that area in the thirteenth century? There are a lot of pictures of them online.

Sometimes I wrestle with my demons. Sometimes we just snuggle.
