Horses are valuable companions in Kingdom Come: Deliverance. Just like Henry, horses can be outfitted with custom gear and armor to improve their capabilities. Once you get a horse of your own, you’ll want to find horse armor as soon as possible to protect your trusty steed from harm, at least on its head. In this guide, we’ll explain where you can track down some free horse armor in Kingdom Come: Deliverance. 

Horse Equipment and Gear

When it comes to customizing your horse in Kingdom Come: Deliverance, you have several options. You can equip your horse with its own gear by visiting a horse trader in one of the towns. These are the same vendors who will sell you a horse as well.  Horse gear comes in varying prices depending on the item and trader. Look for horse traders in the towns of Neuhof, Uzhitz, and Merhojed.

Horse traders sell a variety of gear for your horse, including bridles, spurs, saddles, caparisons, and horseshoes. Except for the caparison, each of these gear pieces come with their own benefits and can improve your horse’s capabilities. Aside from a minor speed penalty, the caparison is mostly just for looks.

Bridles and Spurs improve how your horse handles, while horseshoes can increase your horse’s galloping and cantering speeds. If it’s storage capacity you’re after, then a saddle with bigger saddlebags should do the trick.

Where to Get Horse Armor

If you need more money and can’t afford to get horse gear, you can still find some free horse armor if you know where to look. Head armor for your horse can be found atop a cliff east of Ledetchko. Head north along the river on the east side of Ledetchko. Follow the cliff to the northeast toward the forest.

Approach the edge of the cliff, making sure to save your game ahead of time in case you fall and die while trying to retrieve the horse armor. About halfway down the cliff, there is a huge nest with a dead horse in the middle. 

Carefully make your way down to the nest and loot its contents to obtain the horse armor. The horse head armor called Chanfron and Criniere helps defend against stabbing, slashing, and blunt attacks, while the Noble Bridle is purely cosmetic.
