A Hunter.

The Hunter is an excellent all-round horse, with a good balance of stats. It has good speed, charge and maneuverability as well as reasonable armor and hit points. This horse is used by many higher-tier cavalry units such as Vaegir Knights, including the lords of numerous factions (such as King Ragnar).

For a new player switching up from their starting horse, the Hunter is faster and more maneuverable than the Swaybacked Saddle Horse that most choices start with, and becomes noticeably more so once your riding skill is higher. When running down enemies, only enemies riding Saddle Horses and Coursers will be able to outrun it. Anyone riding more maneuverable horses like the Steppe Horse, Desert Horse and Sarranid Horse may simply try to out turn and get behind it to the rider's blind spots.

This horse is found in every town in the game.
