The Hishans are the most popular riding animals on the mainland. They resemble a 1st era Human empire horse in their outline, but outdo their ancestor with their extra set of eyes. They are also generally hairless, although certain breeds originating from colder areas sometimes have a thin coat of shaggy hair on them. Their skin appears cracked, more so the older they get. Unlike horses, they stand at a slight angle, making it difficult to ride one without a saddle; you’d slide down the back and onto the ground. The saddle, then, is fastened under and over their forelegs. Primitive/minimalistic Hishan saddles look like wide straps of cloth or leather stretched around the creature’s chest & neck and securing the rider only as long as they lean back against it.
