Horse

A Horse is a large four-legged, four-hooved animal with a long face, substantial body and fast, narrow legs. This is the primary mount for Humans.

The strong bond between the humans of Azeroth and their warhorses has existed for generations. However, since the fall of Lordaeron, only select varieties continue to be bred throughout Alliance-controlled lands. Most prized among these are the stately Evendales of Elwynn Forest, renowned for their loyalty and even tempers. These horses command a hefty sum, but they reward their owners with steadiness and speed.[1] Horses are widely domesticated for riding and as beasts of burden.[1] (MGWS 11)
