Default Help to ID Please - ?Hussars

I thought that this might be a 3H Arm Badge, however, it does not fit the patterns.

Looking at old pre-1900 photos, the 3H wore quite large collars?

Any assistance appreciated.

Chris,
I have these two different 'running horses' which I think are 3rd Hussars collar badges but not as nice as your 'big tail' example. background grid is 5mm squares.

Looks more like a PWO Yorkshire Horse to me, but again, I've not seen an example with a tail like that.

Best,

Andy C
