* Blackjack from ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians''. Also Rainbow the Hippocamp (ie: literal sea horse). Mrs O'Leary is a giant hell-hound but she can be ridden through shadows (don't try it if you're afraid of the dark). From ''TheHeroesOfOlympus'', we have Tempest (a storm spirit who happens to look and act like a horse) and Arion, immortal son of Poseidon and Demeter conceived while they were both in the form of horses, capable of breaking the sound barrier across land and [[WalkOnWater and sea]]. The fact that the latter is Percy's half-brother is a bit of a shock to say the least.

* Epona, Link's steed in multiple ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' games beginning with ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'', is much beloved by fans. She's so cool that, in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]'', if you speak to her as a wolf, her dialogue is [[YouAreNotAlone words of encouragement]]. She's not in this because she's simply been trained to do what you say - [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming she's in this because she wants you to succeed in your quest]]. Not only this, but [[spoiler: during the final battle,]] she manages to keep pace with [[spoiler: Ganondorf's MaybeMagicMaybeMundane]] [[RedEyesTakeWarning red-eyed]] [[BlackAndRedAndEvilAllOver Gerudo stallion]] while carrying [[spoiler: twice as many riders]].

* Game Freak and Nintendo also give us the Pokémon [[PlayingWithFire Ponyta and Rapidash]], which are horses with flaming manes and tails. [[ShockAndAwe Blitzle and Zebstrika]] are native to ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite's'' Unova region; as the name indicates, they're electric zebras. [[OlympusMons Keldeo]] is a water-type unicorn Pokémon. And ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' add to the horse family with [[DishingOutDirt Mudbray and Mudsdale]].

** As pictured above, Phantom Ganon in ''Ocarina of Time'' rides his own version of Ganondorf's HellishHorse during his boss fight.
** ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild Breath of the Wild]]'' makes Epona [[BribingYourWayToVictory amiibo-exclusive]] to emphasize the open nature of the game. Wild horses can be caught in about 80% of Hyrule, and among them are Zelda's [[GoldAndWhiteAreDivine Royal White Stallion]] [[note]] possessed of a five-star stamina stat for extended galloping[[/note]], an aptly-named [[BiggerIsBetter Giant Horse]] [[note]] boasting a five-star strength stat that can break Moblins[[/note]], monstrous [[DemBones Stalhorses]], the ethereal [[TheJuggernaut Lord of the Mountain]], [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and]] the [[ShoutOut suspiciously]] [[VideoGame/ShadowOfTheColossus Agro-like]] horse ridden by Link in cutscenes, the Rider amiibo, [[spoiler:and the final battle if no horses have been tamed]].

* Parodied with Rocinante, DonQuixote's horse. Let's just say [[MeaningfulName Rocin = horse in bad shape]].

* Parodied with Twinkle the Marvel Horse on ''WesternAnimation/DaveTheBarbarian'', who has the technicolor hair and flowery tack of your average girly fantasy pony, but talks like ChristopherWalken and speaks endlessly of his morbid dreams about screaming maggots of death and doing unmentionable things to penguins.

* Literature/MartinFierro: When he is conscripted, Martin Fierro takes his best clothes and his best horse to the Frontier: The [[http://www.pelajescriollos.com/pelajes/moro/ "Moro" (a horse with gray hair)]] that is a beautiful horse that had won a lot of races and had made a lot of money for Fierro. The "Moro" is so cool that The Commander steals it from [[ButtMonkey Martin Fierro]].

** 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.


Added DiffLines:

* 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.
