* Faran, the roan from from ''TheElenium'' and ''The Tamuli'' also by Creator/DavidEddings, is the incredibly intelligent and capable companion of Sparhawk the Knight. Their relationship is less than one of perfect compliance and involves the kind of trickery and coercion one might actually see in a strong-willed horse. Faran acts like he has a bad temper exclusively because Sparhawk actually likes him to act that way.[[note]]When ridden by Child-Goddess Aphrael in a quiet moment, he shows his BruiserWithASoftCenter side.[[note]]

* The Sothoii coursers in David Weber's ''Literature/TheWarGods'' series are the result of [[AWizardDidIt magical]] [[BioAugmentation genetic engineering]]. As such they are bigger, stronger, faster and tougher than normal horses, as intelligent as humans, have the ability to magically bond with humans, and are able to talk telepathically to each other as well as their human companions and same mages.

* Melynlas, Taran's horse in Creator/LloydAlexander's ''ChroniclesOfPrydain'', was not excessively badass but was extremely loyal -- so much so that when he was stolen, Taran was able to prove his ownership by being the only person the horse would allow to mount him. His mother, Melyngar, was the prized mount of Taran's friend Prince Gwydion, and she ''was'' quite the quadroped badass.

* Being stories about adventures in WildWest era, Creator/KarlMay's stories featured quite a lot of Cool Horses, including in them Hatatitla, Ilstchii, and purebreed Arabian horse, who Literature/{{Winnetou}} claimed [[BlasphemousBoast "Even Manitou couldn't ride a better horse than this"]]. Hatatitla and Ilstchii are black stallions of Apache breed that are all of extraordinary quality, and they have the finest specimen. The antagonists in the movie adaptations tend to covet them and try to steal them from our noble heroes.

** "Normal" Sothoii horses also qualify since while they are not as cool as the coursers they are descended from the less successful results of the same experiments that produced the coursers. As such they are quite a bit faster and with more endurance than a normal horse, and are more intelligent that normal horses although not to the same levels as the coursers.
