Of Waves and Dragons
A mans Horse is his lifeline.
A horse to a knight is his mode of transportation, the symbol of his status and his most valuable tool for war. Because of this knights typically travel with several horses. A Charger for combat, two Rouncies for riding (one for the knight and one for his squire) and a Sumpter or a Mule for hauling equipment. For shorter trips or when riding patrol most Knights will only take one horse, often their Charger.
This is a large, heavy, battle-trained steed, the standard knight’s warhorse. Most chargers are hybrids of native British ponies with the great horse or other large foreign breeds.
