Jingle bells, (Compare Prices) like the ones in this picture would likely be placed over the horse's back. Attached to the shafts or along the front dash of the cutter there would often be a line of little open chimes like tiny church bells that jingled as the horse trotted along. Some jingle bells were as large as 4 inches across and rung in a deeper tone than the smaller ones. The combination of large and small bells would give each horse and cutter their own sound.
