Scottish Horse small badge

My 4th doubtful, rather roughly struck on the back and loops have been silvered. I would have expected a cleaner striking? All opinions welcome. Denis

Essex Yeomanry fantasy?

I can not find this rather uninspiring badge in any book so just wondering if it is a fantasy badge despite looking quite old? All comments welcome. Denis
