Heavy horses are larger and heartier, bred for labor such as pulling plows or carriages. These horses gain the following adjustments to the base horse statistics:

A heavy horse gains the Advanced Simple Template (already applied here). In addition, it also gains a bite attack that inflicts 1d4 damage, and its hoof damage increases to 1d6. As with a light horse, a heavy horse can be specifically trained for combat with the Handle Animal skill.

Heavy horses stand 5 to 6 feet tall at the shoulder and weigh between 1,000 and 1,500 pounds.
