This bridle bit was found on display at the Trinidad History Museum (former Santa Fe Trail Museum) in Trinidad, Colorado. It was not marked or was it tagged with an object number. Attempts to determine if the horseshoe was previously accessioned or merely collected to dress up a display case as an exhibit prop were unsuccessful. It is possible the shoe was previously accessioned as society property as an H.7200 or 95.323 collection number. If so, however, those collections were also found in collections objects with no identified provenance. Many of those objects were originally collected and displayed at the A.R. Mitchell Museum in Trinidad. Since History Colorado staff were unable to definitively match this object to either of those collection numbers, it was decided to assign the 2021.32 number to this object.
