Dancer is a horse at Winterfell. She is a small two-year-old filly with a chestnut coat.
A Game of Thrones
Dancer is trained by Joseth, Winterfell's master of horse, especially for Bran Stark after he becomes crippled. She is taught to respond to touch, sound and the reins due to Bran's inability to use his legs.
Bran is riding Dancer in the wolfswood when he is threatened by wildlings and deserters from the Night's Watch. Bran later rides Dancer when Robb Stark departs Winterfell with the northern host.
A Clash of Kings
Bran rides Dancer when Cley Cerwyn arrives at Winterfell for the harvest feast. The horse is draped in bardings of snowy white wool emblazoned with the grey direwolf of House Stark when Bran rides into the Great Hall for the feast.
After the capture of Winterfell by Theon Greyjoy, Bran eventually disappears from the castle. According to Aggar, all of the horses remain in the stable.
When Bran emerges from the crypt of Winterfell after the sacking of the castle, Bran sees dead horses in the burned stables and assumes Dancer is among them.
