Horse is trained by Iron Emmett after his appointment as master-at-arms at Castle Black. Jon, the new Lord Commander of the Night's Watch, spies him training in the yard against Hop-Robin, whom he easily defeats. Jon compliments his skill, but advises him that he lowers his shield too far when pressing the attack. Horse thanks the Lord Commander for his advice as he helps Hop-Robin back to his feet.[3]
