"Jorvik is home to beautiful and majestic breeds from around the world, but the most amazing horses of all can only be found on this island. Horses with manes and tails in rainbow colors beyond imagination, horses that shimmer like jewels or burn with the fury of the elements -- these are the Magic Horses of Jorvik!

No one knows where Pepita, also known as a 'Gjourd Horse,' comes from. The mysterious breed tends to show up in late autumn when the leaves have turned and mornings are frosty.

A social breed, herds of Pepita tend to pop up on the outskirts of Jorvik's agricultural lands. Whatchful farmers hope for a glimpse of the curious horses observing the harvest, as Pepita is considered a good luck omen. In some rural corners of Jorvik, children leave a bucket of candy corn on the edge of fields as an offering of good will.

Pepita has a cozy scent reminiscent of nutmeg and cloves. Its mane is course and grows quickly. While Pepita is and excellent riding horse for all hours of the day, you can tell by the glimmer in its eyes that it most enjoys going for rides at twilight.

Like other Magic Horses of Jorvik, Pepita shows its true colors in wild places and will conceal its appearance in populated areas. Whether in its pumpkin-like form or in disguise, Pepita rides just like the Fjord Horses it most resembles"

Unique Features[]

Color Changing[]

The Pepita is a magical horse with the special ability to change colors. When the player presses the "h" key or the magic horse icon on the horse's character sheet, the horse will change from its neutral colors to its natural (magic) colors and vice versa.
