Your horse will help you travel across the island of Tsushima, as it is the fastest form of transportation. You can ride random horses you find across the land, but the horse you choose at the beginning will always appear when you call for it.

Your horse can also appear at the end of tales, showing the bond between Jin and the horse you choose.
