* People who attempt this in TamoraPierce's ''Literature/TortallUniverse'' novels tend to end up badly. In the ''Literature/SongOfTheLioness'' quartet, this brings about the demise of [[spoiler:King Roald]], although this is largely viewed as a suicide because of his grief at the death of his wife. In the ''Literature/DaughterOfTheLioness'' duology, this is how Sarai and Dove's mother died, as revealed through {{backstory}}.

The horse makes a tremendous leap to the top of the ravine overlooking the river he'd previously been stuck in, and Liu Bei's [[BigDamnHeroes reinforcements finally show up]].

* Horses are being added to ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' in version 1.6, and have been available for testing in the weekly snapshots. With the right horse, it is possible to jump gaps and obstacles previously unthinkable without much effort. It's only a matter of time before equestrian events are designed and organized.

* One of the "attacks" used by [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Wolfgunblood]] and [[MechanicalHorse Garopa]] from ''AlienSoldier''. A set of high or low walls appear, and they will jump them if the walls are high. You gotta avoid the walls too or you'll take damage.

* PlayedWith in Creator/MercedesLackey's ''To Take a Thief''. The young protagonist attempts to steal a horse, despite never having ridden one, and [[spoiler: it runs away with him on its back]]. When he sees a big wagon blocking the road, he sensibly assumes the horse won't be able to jump it [[spoiler: and he'll be able to jump off when it stops.]] He's wrong. It turns out that the horse [[spoiler: is actually a magical being known as a Companion, [[JustifiedTrope explaining why it's able to perform such impressive jumps]].]]

** In another episode, the cast jumps across another ravine through convenient stone pillars. One of the pillars falls before Twilight can get across, and the hydra that was chasing them was getting closer. [[spoiler: Twilight obviously doesn't make the jump, but the swamp at the bottom produces an enormous bubble that catches her and propels her all the way up]].

Also a case of ForgotAboutHisPowers, since she can teleport at will.
