What are terrets?

Terrets are the little metal hoops on the collar and saddle of driving harness that the reins/lines run through. They're designed to prevent the lines from dropping too low and possibly tripping the horse. There are also sometimes terrets on the rear bridles of a large team.

Here the reins have been tucked through the saddle terrets to keep them out of the way.
