Horse hair sporrans are a form of kilt ornament that is typically worn with military clothing. Pipers frequently wear the most colorful sporrans, with long horsehair swishing from side to side when the piper marches. Horse hair sporrans are primarily composed of black horsehair, but they can also be found in white or brown.

It is one of the most dramatic and largest dress-sporrans, with a very formal appearance. A standard horse hair bag reaches from just below the waist to the hem of the kilt. The most common design is black horsehair tassels on a white horsehair background. The sporran also has a pewter or silver cantle engraved on it. This type, composed of horsehide rather than tail hair, is better suited to the compact shape and decor of less flamboyant, semi-dress versions.
A horse hair sporran is a traditional Scottish pouch worn as part of the highland dress, typically worn with a kilt. It is made from horsehair woven or knotted together to create a pouch hanging from a leather strap around the waist.
The horsehair is often dyed black, brown, or white, and the sporran can be adorned with various embellishments, such as tassels, fur, or metal accents.
Horse hair sporrans were historically worn by Scottish highlanders as a practical item, providing a convenient place to store small personal items, such as money or tobacco. Today, they are worn for formal occasions, such as weddings and symbolize Scottish heritage and tradition.
