A troop of guardsmen from the Eyrie on horseback, seemingly led by Ser Vardis Egan given the similarity of the breastplate armor he’s wearing. The armor of the guards is not the most impressive we’ve seen in the series, but the fact that they have proper breastplates and pauldrons for their shoulders suggests them to be a bit more wealthily outfitted than the Stark guards. A nice detail are the saddle blankets, which are a rich blue with a white trim that matches the Arryn coat of arms as depicted in the series (but is not in keeping with GRRM’s intentions).
