Warhorses (軍馬を) were horses that were ridden into battle.


Warhorses were extremely valuable. Even if you could actually raise the money to buy one, a normal person wouldn’t be able to get one easily. Leaving aside monstrous riding animals like wyverns and griffins, warhorses were some of the mightiest creatures which could serve as mounts.[1]


Warhorses were very distinct in appearance. They are noted to be fine specimens Based on their grooming and physique.[2]


Warhorses differed from regular horses that these beasts knew they were riding into death.[3] These horses could bear their fear due to its training thus they were able to remain disciplined even under harrowing situations, whilst regular horses, would not be able to move from fear.[4]
