What is a "packhorse"?

arrow

A packhorse is a type of horse that is specifically trained and used for carrying heavy loads on its back, typically over long distances in rugged terrain. These horses are well-suited for traveling on narrow, rocky, or steep paths where vehicles cannot easily go. They are often used by hikers, campers, and other outdoor enthusiasts who need to carry a large amount of gear and supplies. Packhorses are also used in the transportation of goods and supplies in remote areas where there is no road access. They are typically bred and trained for their endurance, strength, and sure-footedness in difficult terrain, and are often accompanied by experienced handlers or guides. In many parts of the world, packhorses are still an important means of transportation in rural areas.
