Description
Horses of these varieties can be bought.

Combat
Horses typically flee from predators but when trained to be warhorses they can be vicious combatants.

Horses kick and stamp with their hooves and the particularly aggressive breeds are known to bite opponents.

Arvoreen's Warpony
These trusty ponies have been trained to do various saddle tricks that are helpful for small size riders. They have no actual association with the Arvoreen's Marchers, but rather are trained to the standard preferred by them.

Brost Pony
The most common ponies in the region, Brost Ponies are usually put to work. They have enough training to be used as war horses if they need to be.

Calimite
The extremely fast Calimite is a prized possession. Bred for speed and aggression, these horses are hot-blooded by definition. They are usually very expensive to import.

Celestial Charger
The steeds called from good-aligned planes by paladins are known as Celestial Chargers. These creatures are very intelligent and possess a profound bond with the paladin who calls them.

Chionthar Warmblood
This popular swift horse is not local to the Wealdath by any stretch, so it is another horse that must be imported.

Cormyrean Destrier
A true warhorse, the Cormyrean Destrier is considered a superior and even noble breed. Some knightly orders are said to prefer going without new horses if a Cormyrean Destrier cannot be sourced.
