The article describes the finds of rider and horse equipment from sites of Pskov long barrow culture: typology, chronology, composition of the complexes. Pskov long barrows yielded bits (two- or three-piece), spurs with hooks and conical spike, a fragment of lash, elements of bridle. Most items are dated to a wide span within the middle — third quarter of the I Millennium. Horse burials in Pskov long barrows are quite numerous, they yield two types of bridle: 1) bridle with metal parts, 2) set of bit and a small bronze buckle. Horse burials and finds from them are similar to Balt antiquities. Possible relationship between Pskov long barrows and Baltic cultures requires further detailed study.

Keywords: Pskov long barrow culture, early Middle Ages, Balts, rider and horse equipment, bridle, bit, spurs, horse burials
