* The song "The Black Mare" of ''Music/{{Dragonland}}'' is about a fast [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin black mare]] that is used by the protagonist and his companion [[spoiler: the Elven Queen]] to the [[HiddenElfVillage Elven lands]], across what seems to be a sizable chunk of the album's setting. Possibly [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in that said mare is an Elven supernatural breed of horse.

* Averted (sorta) in the flash game Caravaneer where horses need food, water, and veterinary care. However, if they have unlimited of these resources, they can travel at full speed forever.

* Averted in the ''Literature/ChroniclesOfPrydain'', where horses do get tired and need to be fed and watered, and in ''The Black Cauldron'', Taran's horse gets a stone in her shoe which has to be removed before she can ride again.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** Olenna's late husband apparently died because he didn't notice his horse wandering off a cliff, which is either this trope or evidence of a horse committing suicide.
** Bronn describes Dornish sand steeds in these terms, which could easily be hyperbole for their great endurance.

* In ''Series/GameOfThrones'', the needs of horses are often referenced. At the start of the second season, a horse dies of thirst, and in one memorable moment in the first season, [[BloodKnight Gregor Clegane's]] horse is deliberately sabotaged by his opponent (the horse Clegane is riding is a stallion, and his opponent's horse is a mare in heat) and Clegane responds by demanding his squire bring his '''[[{{BFS}} SWORD!]]''' and he [[YouHaveFailedMe beheads the poor stallion right there.]]

Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/TotalWarShogun2'' has horses buck when charging into prepared spear formations, and allows cavalry units to dismount - which is fairly likely to have the horses run off if they're left alone anywhere near the din of battle or arrow volleys.

* William Nevison, an English highwayman, was recognized by one of his victims in Kent. In order to establish an alibi, he rode all the way to York (roughly 200 miles), hoping to get there earlier than it would be believed possible so as to fool the authorities. It worked too, and, given the timescale involved, chances are he either galloped or cantered the entire way, again, an incredibly BadAss feat for man and horse.
