Combat

A horse not trained for war does not normally use its hooves to attack. Its hoof attack is treated as a secondary attack and adds only half the horse's Strength bonus to damage. (These secondary attacks are noted with an asterisk in the Attack and Full Attack entries for the heavy horse and the light horse.)

Horse, Heavy

The statistics presented here describe large breeds of working horses such as Clydesdales. These animals are usually ready for heavy work by age three. A heavy horse cannot fight while carrying a rider.

This majestic steed seems to be a perfect warhorse.

Full warhorses are the pinnacle of equine mounts. Through selection of the finest stock and breeding among heavy warhorses, only one foal in five hundred results in a full warhorse. As a result, full warhorses are highly prized by cavaliers and other mounted warriors, or as status symbols among the wealthy and the elite.

COMBAT

A full warhorse is bred for battle, dealing vicious strikes with its hooves and biting at its master's foes.

Armored Destrier (Ex): A full warhorse can move at its base speed even when wearing medium or heavy barding or when carrying a medium or heavy load.

Combative Mount (Ex): A rider on a trained full warhorse mount gets a +2 circumstance bonus on all Ride checks. A trained full warhorse is proficient with light, medium, and heavy armor.

Training a Full Warhorse

Due to the limited knowledge and difficulty breeding techniques required to produce a full warhorse, these creatures are treated as magical beasts for training purposes.

A full warhorse costs at least 1,500 gp during favorable times, with prices increasing greatly during times of war or civil unrest.

A full warhorse available for purchase is usually already trained for the combat riding special purpose, but it requires additional training to familiarize itself with its rider, which takes 3 weeks. During this time, a full warhorse can learn one additional trick (beyond the six an animal of Intelligence 2 is normally able to learn).

Carrying Capacity: A light load for a full warhorse is up to 399 pounds; a medium load, 400–798 pounds; and a heavy load, 799–1,200 pounds. A full warhorse can drag 6,000 pounds.
