Black Horses for the King, by Anne McCaffrey

"Galwyn gets a gold ring and buys a cloak, a pony, and leggings. Romans have left Britain so it is up to the Saxons to protect them. Canyd wants sandals for the horses so that their hooves will not get pierced. Horse sandals are difficult to make because they are not like normal sandals and you have to use a special kind of nail for them. Britons attempt to beat the Saxons in battle. Saxons win and Britain stays independent."
