ABSTRACT
The article examines the various horn saddle ornaments and elephant griffins from Obiezdnoye-1 from OB Plateau through Scythian period. An overview on the decoration of the objects is cited, including the representations of the elephant griffin on the assemblage with Saka immigrants and on the warfare. Moreover, it concludes that horn parts of the Obiezdnoye saddle are similar to Pazyryk and Saka zoomorphic decorations and appears to have belonged to a representative of the Saka elite or to an individual whose ancestors had been associated with this elite.
