My first attempt to make a Horse deck - but after being severly punished by Calling The Cavalry at the Copenhagen Hunting Grounds Series I wanted to make my own version. I liked the skeleton provided by the A Horse of Course deck, but made some modifications to suit my own style of play. Most of the cards are fairly obvious, but I really like how Jael's Guile combos with the other few cards that can boot Dudes (namely Run 'Em Down! and Ridden Down. I added the sole Kidnappin' to counter the widespread use of Pedro that I face all the time, so that they might use the poor donkey for protection against my Run 'Em Down!. Due to the spread of cards from 6 to 10, I included a few 9 clubs in shade of Cheatin' Varmint in order to make room for a possible late game Straight Flush. Only card that really hasn't performed well is Rope and Ride. It's bothers me, since I really like the ability. But in none of my few games so far has it ever been useful. So I might scrap it for a tighter draw structure.
