* ''Literature/TheMarvelousLandOfOz'' justifies this in the case of the [[HorseOfADifferentColor Sawhorse]], which, being made of out of wood, requires neither food nor rest.

* Horses in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrolls'':
** in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'', They never need to eat, drink, sleep or relieve themselves (but then again, [[BottomlessBladder neither does the player character]]).
** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' continues this, [[http://i.imgur.com/Xaoka.jpg with interest]].
** The loading screens for ''Skyrim'' even [[LampshadeHanging lampshade]] this property. "What the horses of Skyrim lack in speed they make up in stamina."

* Averted big time in ''ComicBook/TexWiller'': anyone with a lick of sense treat their mounts well, so if we see someone push their horses it's an obvious sign they're idiots who will pay for it soon or [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness the situation is just that desperate]].

* Averted with tragic results in all versions of ''Film/TrueGrit'' (novel included). Rooster rides Blackie hard for several hours to get medical attention for a delirious and dying Mattie. Blackie collapses from exhaustion well before they make it to safety, and Rooster is forced to draw his pistol and [[MercyKill put the poor horse out of his agony]].

* Garami Manga/TheArmsPeddler has a cart drawn by a zombie horse, which never needs to eat, rest, or actually ''stop moving'', if it comes to that. However, it isn't as fast as a regular horse, allowing for chase scenes.



[[folder:ComicBooks]]
* ''ComicBook/LuckyLuke'''s horse Jolly Jumper is less an automatan and just that badass. One sequence shows him running at full speed nonstop over several days, once with Luke sleeping on his back in the saddle, and another running ''while sleeping''.



** This happens in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]'' too, not to mention that [[SoundCodedForYourConvenience Epona's whinnies get much more strained if you push her too hard]].

** This happens in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]'' too, not to mention that [[SoundCodedForYourConvenience Epona's whinnies get much more strained if you push her too hard]]. The same game features truck-sized giant boars used by mounts by Moblins and [[TheJuggernaut as battering rams by Link, smashing through gates and palisades without a second thought.]] Crashing into a wall, however, makes them fall down and take a few seconds to get their brain cell back in order before getting up no worse for wear.
