It allows for a central load attachment while keeping the traces (the lines the horse pulls with) parallel to the horses flanks (sides).

 

Without it the traces would chaff something chronic

Are they definitely swingletrees? They could also be Yokes to be attached between a pair of horses.

 

It's the lack of an attachment point for the traces that makes me wonder. The recessed ends look like they could be used to attach to a martingale or collar strap. Might be a bit short for that though.

 

Either way you'd be looking at £20 ish each I would have thought. You can pick up new ones for £40.

I did wonder that myself as seem a bit short for swingletrees going on what I've seen before, paid £8 for them so should be a small profit if I don't find a use for them :thumbup1:
