This question already has an answer here:
It's a kind of mask that is worn by horses so that they can't see sideways or backwards.
I think it's called a blinder (not sure though) but is there a proper term for this accessory in English? Preferably something that is used by Race Organizers?
Update 1 : The definition I found from Wiktionary
A screen attached to a horse's bridle preventing it from being able to see things to its side.
My question - Does a blinder have other names? (For example, blinker is one...)
Update 2 : Possible duplicate flag raised. I felt that blinders were more of a colloquial term(It's my personal view and I may well be wrong). I was looking for a formal term, if there was one.
