Henry Cavill recently posted a first look at Geralt’s horse named Roach on his Instagram account, catching the attention of thousands of his fans. The photo shows him in full Geralt getup sitting on a horse in an unknown setting.

Roach is Geralt’s trusty steed and according to both the original books and video games, “Roach” is the name Geralt gives to all of his horses. And all the horses are female. The original name in Polish is Płotka and it’s female gendered.

In the post, Cavill wrote: The road to San Diego is long. The good news is, on her worst day, Roach beats the company of Men, Elves, Gnomes and even Dwarves. She’s not always easy, but she knows more than most and cares just enough to be the only kind of company worth enjoying.

San Diego is of course a reference to the San Diego Comic Con that’s happening on 18-21 July. There will be a Witcher panel at the event. Not much info has been made public about it. Netflix also has yet to release any trailer videos.

In the last Witcher update, Netflix released the first looks of Geralt, Yennefer and Princess Ciri as well as the show poster and the three medallions; Zirael, Gwynbleidd and The Obsidian Star.

According to GameSpot, there is a possibility that they may show a teaser or something at Comic Con. In any way, it will still be a treat for fans as the upcoming series will be discussed.
