Knights on horseback

ANSWER TO YESTERDAY’S QUESTION

A warhorse could carry about 500 pounds or roughly 25 to 33% of the horse’s weight. Warhorses weighed roughly 1400 to 2000 pounds.  Most often Arabian horses are used in the movies, these horses are faster, lighter, more maneuverable, and safer than the draft horses (looking more like the modern Clydesdale horses).  In real life war horses tended to be favored for power and strength rather than speed.
