One Horse Endgames p03

In this section, the single horse is discussed when facing the single pawn.
The solitary horse can only checkmate by stalemate. So, if the opponent has a pawn, it could be used to make idle moves to force a draw. However, there are many examples of positional wins when 1h vs 1p! 

These seemingly simple endgames teach a very important lesson on the proper use of the horse and what it can do. I will add on to the list as time goes by!
Endgames discussed here:
1h d 1p , 1h pw 1p (many examples)
