The burning of Sow’s Horn is an attempted burning of Sow's Horn that takes place in 299 AC during the War of the Five Kings.

Prelude

Following Lannister defeats at the Whispering Wood and the Camps, Lord Tywin Lannister orders Ser Amory Lorch to burn territory in the riverlands from the Green Fork down to the God's Eye.

Battle

Westermen led by Amory attempt to burn Sow's Horn in the crownlands, despite House Hogg being sworn to House Hayford and not the rebel House Tully. The burning fails as a result of Sow's Horn's thick stone walls, however, and Amory retreats northwards back into the riverlands after slaughtering half of Ser Roger Hogg's sheep and several goats.[1]

Aftermath

There is further fighting at Sow's Horn between Hoggs and Karstarks. Ser Jaime Lannister passes through Sow's Horn on his way to resolve the sieges of Riverrun and Raventree Hall in the riverlands. Roger is angry that Amory attempted to burn Sow's Horn despite Houses Hogg and Lannister both being sworn to King Joffrey I Baratheon.[1]
