Jousting horses are dressed in a cloth comparison, which is a fabric in the knight's colors covering the horse from head to tail. See how horses are dressed for a joust with information from an experienced jousting instructor in this video on medieval sports.

My name is Matt Hiltman. I'm the head knight at The Atlantic Castle of Medieval Times. I'm going to talk to you about how horses are dressed for a joust. Horses were typically dressed using a cloth comparison which would display their knight's colors. The cloth comparison was a piece of fabric that would cover the horse from head to tail. It had slots for the ears and holes for their eyes. It allowed for freedom of movement while displaying a level of gallantry and pageantry as well as representing their knight. I'm Matt Hiltman, and that is how your horse is dressed for a joust.
