* A truly impressive cavalry shows up in the GrandFinale of WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack to stop the title character's execution and battle Aku, consisting of [[spoiler: the Dog Archaeologists piloting flying robots, the Ravers, the Spartans, the Three Blind Archers and their tribe riding the Woolies, the monkey men Jack taught to "jump good," the Scotsman's ghost leading his AmazonBrigade daughters, and finally the Mecha-Samurai, which manages to fight evenly with Aku himself!]]

* The Music/{{Sabaton}} song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eWkrQQly6xU "Winged Hussars"]] (from ''The Last Stand'') is about the Battle of Vienna in 1683, which partly inspired the siege of Minas Tirith in ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings''. The Ottoman Army had the city surrounded and was working on breaching the walls, but a relief army led by Polish heavy cavalry under King John III Sobieski arrived in the nick of time and hit the Ottomans from behind.

* In the finale of ''[[SpartacusBloodAndSand Spartacus: War of the Damned]],'' [[spoiler:Agron and Nasir arrive just in time to save Spartacus's life. Well, almost; he's already fatally wounded, but they prevent Crassus from delivering the coup de grace, and ensure he dies free.]]
* {{Played For Laughs}} in the pilot episode and first season opening credits of ''Series/FTroop'': Wilton Parmenter, wimpy scion of a military family, while failing to control his horse during a Civil War battle, sneezes. This is taken for an order to charge; the resulting massive cavalry charge wins the battle. Parmenter wins the Medal of Honor and a field commission and is assigned to command the bumbling F Troop.

* The cavalry saw new life in the Afghanistan War, where the terrain poses a challenge for other forms of transport. The "first cavalry charge of the 21st century" took place in the battle for Mazar-i-Sharif in 2001.
