** While Napoleon wasn't great a horseman as much of the owners of the above examples, his favourite mount, Marengo - is worth mentioning. He famously carried Napoleon for half a day during the Battle of Marengo, one of Napoleon's closet victories. The horse lived a charmed life, getting wounded eight times, made 80-mile runs in Spain in less than five hours, and survived the infamous retreat from Moscow (which many of his fellow steers didn't).
** Coperhagen, the Duke of Wellington's own mount ably carried his master to ultimate victory at Waterloo after seventeen hours and almost kicked him to death when he was patted on the flank by accident.

* Napoleon Bonaparte's cavalry arm had one special unit called the ''Grenadiers á cheval'' - literally "Horse Grenadiers" - whose 5'11 foot tall riders (far taller than the average man at the time) rode on giant black horses.

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'' has Shadowmere, a ludicrously fast immortal black mare with red eyes, who, if you let her, will thoroughly kick the shit out of any enemy in-game. You could also knock her out and store an infinite amount of items in her, effectively making weight limits on what you can carry pointless.
** There is also a freaking UNICORN! Which Hircine gives you a quest to kill, but if you refuse you can keep it as a mount.
** The sequel, ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' has [[spoiler:Shadowmere again, who has since become something far more than just a normal horse.]]
*** From Skyrim's third DLC comes Arvak, a skeleton horse who glows with purple flames. As a summoned creature he is also functionally immortal.
** The horse armor {{DLC}} too... Although that wasn't really the best armor, or DLC for that matter...

* The Cool Horse was de rigueur for the B Western hero. [[Franchise/TheLoneRanger Silver]] is the most famous, but equally famous in their day were Gene Autry's steed Champion, Tom Mix's Tony "the Wonder Horse" and, of course, Roy Rogers' companion Trigger. To give an idea of how important these noble equines were, posters for several of Rogers' movies gave Trigger more prominent billing than Dale Evans, ''even after she and Rogers were married.'' ThatOtherWiki has a full article [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wonder_Horses here]].

** Trigger, Roy Roger's horse. According to TheOtherWiki, he knew 150 trick cues and is considered the most famous horse in film history. In fact, Golden Cloud (his original name) appeared as Maid Marian's palomino mount in 1938's ''Film/TheAdventuresOfRobinHood'' prior to being cast as Trigger. Now ''that'' is a Cool Horse!

* Kelpie from ''Literature/LoyalEnemies'' are extremely durable, fast and capable of lifting heavy weights. The best thing about them, though, is that they walk ''on'' snow instead of wading through it... no matter how many kilograms you put on them. As the action of the book takes place in winter, this is absolutely useful.

As them, which is absolutely useful as the action of the book takes place in winter, this winter and involves copious amounts of travelling. Their secret is absolutely useful.that they aren't actually horses, but river currents that take the form of horses on land and remain such as long as they are kept bridled.

* Conrad Starsgard (hero of the GivingRadioToTheRomans series by Leo Frankowski) finds that his mare Anna is as intelligent as a human, can outrun any normal horse, can kill if necessary and can even understand Polish! She's actually a genetically engineered gift from a time-traveling relative, trying to covertly aid Conrad after he was accidentally sent back to 13th Century Poland.

** Not to mention Sequiro from the ''Mode'' series (who comes from a whole Mode of the beasts), the unicorns from ''Apprentice Adept'', and many other equine creatures...definitely an AuthorAppeal.
