Palfrey: During the middle ages, there were three general horse classifications: war, riding, and working. The riding horses (palfreys) had smooth, ambling gaits and were used for hunting and by women. Both war horses and plafreys were expensive and prized by the upper classes. Modern horses that are similar to the medieval palfrey are the Tennessee Walking horse and the Peruvian Paso.
I didn't notice the man who sat on a palfrey in the shadows until he trotted forward and dismounted.
