What are hames?

Hames are the metal or wooden strips that are part of a horse collar, and take a lot of the force of the pull. They stabilize the collar and make it easier for horses to pull very heavy weight.

You can see the top of the hames in this shot - they sort of curve outwards. It looks like they're using the left one as a bridle hook.
