The Tipsy Gelding is one of three inns in Hinderstap. It is a low-roofed inn, little more than a tavern, for working locals. It is situated in the back west corner of the village, three streets out from the center. There is no glass in the windows. A carved sign sits in one window showing a drunken horse.

The inns are compensated for the curfew imposed on the town.

Mat and Talmanes enter the inn and play dice with the locals; Mat losing for a change. He loses enough to the villagers to whet their appetite then bets a chest full of gold on the last throw against supplies from each of the townfolk. Barlden makes the throw. Mat wins.
