    The big horse link thread

    I figured this would be helpful, since there's so much equine interest here. Anyone got a site to add to the list?

    -Hilarious. Frequent writer faux-... um, mistakes.
    -Another fmwriters article. Nice overview.

    Communication, Equine:
    -for writers
    -note- snicker=nicker

    Warfare: (Primarly Medieval or nearly so)
    -History of dressage and some examples of warhorse development...
    -Airs above the ground
    -Calvary. Note- early medieval horse size is overestimated greatly.
    -Regle du Temple- the Knights Templars' monastic constitution (say that three times fast)
    -10/11th century Byzantine calvary tactics
    -medieval English mounted infantry
    -essay on stirrups and their use

    Medieval Breeds:
    -general and specific info, and terms.
    -Wiki on breeds (should this fail, search Wikipedia for Destrier/Courser/Palfrey

    -basic intro, there's a piaffe animation to the right. Also mentions how fast and how long horses can gallop!
    -animation. **if anyone knows a better link, please add it and I'll replace this one**

    Pack mule/horse

    Someone chime in- saw this in the other horse thread somewhere...
