Wild Horses are horses which can be encountered in the wild. They will flee if approached, although they will attack nearby hostiles if necessary. A wild horse can be tamed by continuing to mount it until it breaks.
Once tamed, the horse becomes an owned mount. If you switch to a different mount, it will slowly make its way back to the location you originally found it.
- There are seven wild horses in total. The Unicorn acts almost identically to other wild horses but is documented elsewhere.
- Although each wild horse is identified in your journal with a unique name, each creature on this list is simply named "Wild Horse". The descriptive names are used here for categorization purposes only.
