* Creator/RogerZelazny:
** In ''Dilvish, the Damned'' and the sequel, ''The Changing Land'', Dilvish had a talking metal horse named Black (which was... black). Not exactly a Mecha Horse, as we find out that [[spoiler:it is some kind of creature, possibly a demon, who agreed to help him in his quest according to a deal they made while they were in Hell]].
** Bronze, the Steel General's steed in ''Literature/CreaturesOfLightAndDarkness'' is a magically-enhanced mechanical horse that can ride through space. With each step it takes, it travels twice as far as the previous. It is said that with a sufficient run-up, it could circumnavigate the universe in a single stride.

Not to be confused with [[AutomatonHorses horses treated like machines]], the identically-named [[http://www.mechanical-horse-club.co.uk/ vintage vehicle]], or a type of [[TheKiddieRide kiddie ride]]. A really big mechanical horse with some of the animal traits taken away and some weapons added is basically a SpiderTank.
