Towerpedia:Horsemen's Association

The Horsemenís Association is a fictional group in author Stephen Kingís The Dark Tower series. Formed to further itís membersí common interests, the Horsemenís Association eventually aligns itself with John Farsonís plan to overthrow the Affiliation.

The Horsemenís Association is made up of Hambryís wealthiest and most important ranchers, stockliners, and livestock owners. Fran Lengyll is its president, and other members include John Croyden, Hash Renfrew, Laslo Rimer, Henry Wertner, and Jake White.

It was Laslo Rimer, brother of Kimba Rimer, the Chancellor of Hambry, who first inducted the members of the Horsemenís Association into John Farsonís service. In order to perpetrate the illusion that the Assocation still served the Affiliation, no member dealt directly with any of Farsonís men. George Latigo, one of Farsonís Chief Lieutenants, gave instructions to Kimba Rimer, which were then passed on to the Horsemenís Association.

The Horsemenís Association later becomes involved with the capture of Roland Deschain and his ka-tet, arresting them for the murders of Hart Thorin and Kimba Rimer. Roland and friends eventually foil the plans of John Farson, killing many members of the Horsemenís Association when they trapped them in Eyebolt Canyon.
