Better photographs would certainly help, it certainly appears a well made piece.

.... I think what you have is this badge :-

Denbighshire Hussars
Bronzed Other Ranks (Crimped Slider)
* As seen in Gaylor, Plate 29 Yeomanry 1914.

The photographs in the original post are not the best, the badge appears very well made with a faint crimp mark to the slider.
