Excerpts-

  • From the book The closer they came to the border fort, the narrower
    the valley became. The steep, almost sheer walls towered
    high above them, blotting out the sun although it
    was only a few hours before noon. The floor of the
    valley was in shadow, the sun only reaching it for a couple of hours
    each day, which probably accounted for the snow that still lay thick
    and deep on the ground, even though spring was only a few weeks
    away.


    In spite of the snow, the small party was making better time
    now that they had reached the top of the steep climb that led to
    the pass, and they were moving on level ground again.


    There were two carts, each with a single pair of wheels and
    pulled by a small, sturdy horse. They were stacked neatly with sawn
    lumber, and as they were past the steep uphill climb, most of the
    Heron brotherband rode on them, finding space among the stacks
    of planks and beams that filled the cart trays.


    Hal and Stig rode two saddle horses, leading the way for the
    carts. It was a newly acquired skill for the two Heron leaders. Stig
    had decided that they should learn to ride.


    "After all," he'd told his skirl, "we always find ourselves in
    places where they expect us to ride. We might as well know how to
    do it. It'll save us a lot of walking."


    Hal had agreed and Stig had searched around and procured
    two horses, rescuing them from a life where they would be destined
    to pull carts, and instead turning them into saddle mounts. They
    were stolid little creatures, quiet and unimaginative, nothing like a
    fierce, thundering battlehorse or a speedy, slender-limbed Arridan
    from the deserts to the south. But they carried the two riders
    uncomplainingly—even Barney, the one tasked with bearing Stig's
    large frame. If need arose, both horses could be coaxed into a slow
    canter or, in extreme situations, a clumsy gallop.


    Once Stig had found them, Hal hired one of the Araluen archers,
    who was familiar with horses, to teach them the rudimentary
    points of riding. After suffering the inevitable tumbles, bruises and
    minor injuries, both of them emerged as reasonably capable riders.
    They were, after all, fit and agile young men, with a good sense of
    balance and the rhythm necessary to match their movements to the
    horses' gait.


    With one exception.


    "I don't like trotting," Hal stated. "I always seem to be going
    down when the horse is coming up. It's an unnatural way to travel
    and it's painful."


    His Araluen teacher, who could sit to a trot instinctively and
    so had no idea how to teach someone else to do so, took the easy
    way out.


    "Why bother?" he had told the young skirl. "If you're in a
    hurry, canter or gallop. If you're not, just walk."


    That seemed reasonable to Hal, so he simply ignored the concept
    of trotting from then on. Occasionally, when he saw Stig
    managing to sit smoothly as Barney trotted beneath him, he felt a
    pang of jealousy. He was tempted to ask Stig how he managed it
    but refused to admit his own deficiency.


    "I choose not to trot," he would say, his jaw set stubbornly,
    whenever the subject came up.


    Thorn, on the other hand, chose not to ride at all, even though
    Stig had offered to find a horse for him.


    "I don't trust horses," Thorn said, glaring suspiciously at the
    two stocky little mounts his friends rode. "Even the small ones
    outweigh me by several hundred kilos. They have big teeth and
    hooves as hard as clubs. And they're shifty."


    "Shifty?"...
