The Walking Dead Season 4 is going to feature some new methods of transportation – much cooler than Daryl’s motorbike and Dale’s RV…

Entertainment Weekly has released this bad-ass picture of Michonne (Danai Gurira) on a horse named Flame. The character has proven to be very resourceful in the past, chaining herself to a couple of limbless walkers in order to put other predators off the scent. It seems the horse is just another example of why you’d want to be around Michonne in the apocalypse, according to executive producer Gale Anne Hurd.

“With gas at a premium, with the fact that vehicles break down, I think we would return to the days of horseback riding and you can graze them as you go in a place like Georgia,” she explains. “You don’t have to carry food for them. They feed themselves, so to speak. It goes along with the new approach this season of sustainability.

“With a horse, you can go through the woods. You can get around obstacles. You can’t do that in a vehicle. If a tree falls and blocks the road, you can’t go through the forest. You’re not going to make it through. It’s actually much more of a useful choice.”

We just hope Flame doesn’t suffer the same fate as Rick’s horse in Season One…
