A fast, hardy warhorse lighter than a destrier, but cheaper and more agile. These are the most common dedicated warhorses on the battlefield. Coursers weigh about 1,160 pounds.

Didn't See You There! Anytime the courser realigns its body with its head, and SM 0 or smaller creatures in the way are shoved. They may defend normally. Success means they duck or dodge around the courser, but failure moves them with the courser however far is necessary for the realignment to take place. If this results in him getting knocked down, he must Dodge at -3 to avoid also being trampled for 1d-1 crushing damage as large area injury!
