Horses are Henry's primary means of transportation (besides fast travel) and act as secondary inventory but it's also possible to fight from horseback and some horses like War Horses have special moves and attacks that can be utilized as a weapon. Riding horses increase Henry's Horsemanship skill and unlocks new Horsemanship Perks.
Horses can be categorized into 3 different types:
and each offers different abilities, stats, skills, and perks.
The horse's stamina will drain during a gallop and it will a breather once in a while. if you try to push your horse onto the limit by galopping while its stamina is very low, it will throw you. You'll also fall from the saddle if you're seriously wounded, or get hit by a halberd.
Horses can be acquired as a quest reward (Pebbles can be obtained during the quest The Hunt Begins for free) or need to be bought from Horse Traders. Henry can only own one horse at a time and if you get a new one, the old horse's inventory will automatically be transferred to the new horse. Stolen horses do not remain yours and cannot be called to you.
