We are five novels into the series and we have yet to see this. In fact, the only time we see an Other and a wight in the same place at the same time is the one riding the dead horse. So not only do we not see the Other raise the horse, but it doesn't control it any differently from a normal horse; he just dismounts and the horse just wanders off with no compulsion to kill the living. It doesn't even have the burning blue eyes. And since Others can glide evenly over the top of snow, why would one need to ride any kind of horse, living or dead? So this whole scene is very odd. Mostly agree but... Waymar Wight is clearly raised after being slain by an Other. Is it the Others who raised it? One may argue that there is no direct evidence.
