I am grumpily insomniac; I have given up on sleep for the time being and have curled up in a blanket with some hot chocolate and a book; and probably this would be working better if The Fifth Season (which I am belatedly reading for Hugo purposes) wasn't Wrong about both geology and horses.

ahh, I thought this would be the "Horses are basically big dogs, right? Chill cuz they're herbivores- dogs that don't pounce on stuff. Big, chill dogs. Yep." thing that a lot of fantasy writers do.

K was telling me about a fantasy series where this order of mages turn into horses to be the steeds for the next generation of the order, and I guess that's one way of working around it- just make every horse a wizard-horse.

WHY would you alternate cantering and walking for endurance riding? Better yet, if there's serious, in-world-common endurance riding, why not have a horse capable of ambling?

Horses AND geology. That is just too much.
