Journey

two riders on horseback

A horse is a domesticated animal, often used as a mount or pack beast. In the novels, it is the primary method of transportation. Distances are also often measured in multiples of a "day's ride", which is said to be between 35 and 50 miles per day for very good specimens and perhaps closer to 20 miles per day for "average" animals.

Horse equipment

  • Caparison – A caparison is a covering, or cloth, laid over a horse, especially a pack animal, or horse of state. It is part of the horse armour known as barding, which was typically worn during warfare
  • Saddle – A saddle is a supportive structure for a rider or other load, fastened to an animal's back by a girth.
  • Bridle – A bridle is a piece of equipment used to direct a horse. It usually consists of leather headstall, bit and reins
