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 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 number of items your horse can carry (as a means of mobile storage).
- Courage. Your horse's courage is how much sound and fury he can withstand before he 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 it can never die. When its health drops to zero it will stay like that until it regenerates

[Insert Codex Entry]
- 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.
