Created possibly around 1360 under the Reign of England's King Edward III, The Master of The Horse was earlier called the “Horsthegn” (from The Saxon). It was occupied by a Nobleman. It was The Master of The Horse's responsibility to care for a King or Queen's principle horse (most trusted and used). The Master of The Horse would accompany The Sovereign when he or she rode. The position now is considered ceremonial.
