Six-legged Race

Challenge Details

To the Rohirrim, a horse is more than a companion, more than a servant, more than a tool, more than a symbol of status, and more than a way of life. Inspired by the "Beer for my Horses" thread, this challenge aims to address that special bond between a Rider and his (or her) horse.

In short, a six-legged buddy fic.

Any length is acceptable, any genre, but at least the horse should be Rohirric. You Mumak-fanciers can start your own challenge. This challenge should focus on the relationship of a rider to his or her faithful steed.
