Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A courser is a swift and strong horse, frequently used during the Middle Ages as a warhorse. It was ridden by knights and men-at-arms. Coursers are commonly believed to be named for their running gait, (from Old French cours, 'to run'.). However, the word possibly derived from the Italian corsiero, meaning 'battle horse'. The courser was more common than the destrier, and preferred for hard battle as they were light, fast and strong. They were valuable horses, but less expensive than the highly-prized destrier. Another horse commonly ridden during war was the rouncey, which was an all-purpose horse.show more
