What reference material do people use to understand Civil War era saddles and horse equipment? Years ago I purchased all four volumes of The Horse Soldier 1779-1943.

I purchased these books for the uniforms but the books also arms accouterments, and Equipment. Volume II does comer saddles and horse equipment. Being published in 1978, I am assuming addition information about Union saddles and horse equipment has been published. Is this book still relevant? Perhaps forum members can recoment more authoritative books.
