Horses are a type of domestic animal found in Kingdom Come: Deliverance, and are the main means of faster and more efficient travel (barring fast travel). By riding on a horse you also level up your horsemanship skill. Horses are purchased from horse traders, located at or near Neuhof (Zora), Uzhitz (Head Groom), Merhojed (Johann) and, if you have From the Ashes, Pribyslavitz (Stablemaster).

They can be hunted, but any items harvested from them are considered stolen, as horses belong to the villagers. Poaching is also a crime, so Henry should be careful about who sees him, or who he tries to sell to.

All horses have different strengths and weaknesses, and you should select the horse that best suits your needs (and budget). Henry may equip his horse with different types of horse tack, such as saddles, bridles, spurs and horseshoes, to improve their stats. If your steed is to go into battle, consider obtaining some horse head armour or body armour, or even just a caparison.


  • Speed: The speed of your horse determines how fast it can walk, trot, canter and gallop.
  • Capacity: Capacity is the total weight your horse can carry (as a means of mobile storage).
  • Courage: Your horse's courage is how much sound and fury it can withstand before it bolts.
  • Stamina: Your horse's stamina will deplete during a gallop. You will have to give your horse a breather every once and a while, otherwise he will buck you off onto the ground.
  • Health: Your horse's health works much like your own, although your horse can never die. When its health drops to zero your horse will stay on the ground until its health regenerates.

There are also a lot of generic horses simply named "Horse" that are not listed here. You can ride them, but not make them your own.

Codex Entry

A dog might be man's best friend, but you can't ride one. Better to make friends with a horse! The basic riding controls are the same as when you're on foot, W A S D Your horse can of course jump, Space slow to a walk, caps speed up to a canter LShift or gallop LShift LShift which apart from speed affects the radius of turning and, naturally, drains the horse's stamina as well as your own. You can see your horse's stamina, only when mounted, as a green indicator just next to your health indicator.

If you try to push your horse when its stamina is too low, it will throw you. You'll also fall from the saddle if you're seriously wounded (hit by an arrow, for example), or you can be unhorsed by a halberd. Your horse is smarter than some people and will stick to the path you're on if you give him his head. Just begin cantering LShift and don't steer him. In the horse tab B you will see your horse's stats, tackle and inventory. You can call your horse any time by whistling X and mount it using X But your whistle will also be heard by the people within earshot, which sometimes can be a disadvantage, while on the other hand it can also be a way of distracting attention... Horses don't grow on trees though! It's a costly thing that you can only acquire by buying, stealing or getting as a gift or reward. You can compare you horses stats with those of other horses by holding X Henry can only own one horse at a time: if you get a new one, the old horse's inventory will move automatically to the new one. Once you get your first horse, you'll always have a mount.


  • 1 These horses are quest related, although you can mount them, you cannot make them your own.
  • 2 These horses were added with DLCs and are not part of the base game.
  • Most of the game's horses are named after horses from various mythologies and literature from around the world - with the exception of Warhorse Jenda, who is named after a developer's dog Jenda, and the name of the game's creators, Warhorse.
  • Despite some of the different horses being referred to as males or females, all horses appear to be stallions, as they all have visible penile sheathes. This may be a developer oversight, or it was simpler to recolour one stallion model than make individual models for mares.
  • The corpses of horses that you kill will remain scattered throughout the countryside.
