Cloud's Rider (The Finisterre Universe #2) - C. J. Cherryh

On a distant planet, all the native creatures communicate telepathically, projecting images which drive humans to madness. As a result, the people live in walled cities and owe their lives to the nighthorses, equines who can bond with certain riders and provide a telepathic "buffer".

But one savage winter, young Danny Fisher and his nighthorse Cloud lead the survivors of a deadly telepathic attack to shelter high in the snowbound mountains – only to discover their "sanctuary" threatened by a vicious predator never before known to humans.
