I am assuming the 'original' way the horo was worn. The later horo had different types of wicker frameworks that the horo cape was placed over.

The original way the horo was worn had no framework. It was a large rectangular cloth with straps coming out of the four corners. The straps on the upper corners were tied to the shoulder straps of the armour. The straps on the lower corners were tied around the waist.

You'd have to be on a galloping horse riding against the wind for the horo to be an effective 'arrow catcher'.

Hi Emmanuel, you're still the best! I'm sculpting a 54mm mounted samurai and I'll try to let it fly like the wind.
