Spooked Mare is a secondary quest in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
Head to the riverside just north of Crossroads and speak with a man whose horse had run off. Agree to help the poor man and use your Witcher Senses to track down the horse’s hoofprints which will eventually lead you to a group of Scoia’tael. After speaking with the Scoia’tael Commander, you can choose to either start a fight, use the Axii Sign on the commander, or pay 100 Crowns to buy the horse from him. Once you’ve retrieved the horse, use your Axii Sign to calm it down and return it to its owner.
If the Axii sign is used, Geralt will be allowed to return one horse to the farmer. If he chooses a younger and stronger horse than the grey old nag the farmer originally owned, his monetary reward is higher with no penalty to XP earned.
