    crusata

    Hello,

    1. The text is: "Forgive me, brother, I have to go now, in the greatest haste, to Granada, with every crusata I can scrape together."

    What is crusata? I couldn't find its meaning. What does it mean?

    2. The horse, fresh and restless, strutted in place, fretting to be gone.

    Why fresh and restless? it sounds contrast, doesn't it? and fretting to be gone = the horse doesn't want to go?

    Thank you.

    2. The horse is rested (fresh) and is restless because it wants to get moving.
    "fretting to be gone" = the horse does want to go. Something is preventing it.
