The saga of ranking fictional animals continues!

The bond between horses and people is something special that we have witnessed in real life and in fiction. There is something majestic and bad ass about these creatures that have stuck with us over centuries that we keep coming back to. In fiction in particular, we see these loyal animals in some of the most entertaining stories while also being the heart of why the main character often succeeds. Join Tuong La and Montreal Improv’s Vinny Francois, Kadi Diop, and Stefan Spec as they gallop into your hearts and neigh out a Top 5 Fictional Horse list!

Ground Rules

  • We are allowing Pony nominations as they are technically a “small horse”
  • Pegasus also are allowed as they are mythical flying horses
  • Nominations that do not qualify are Zebras, Donkeys, Mules, and Unicorns as they are not full horse (Ie Unicorns technically are also goat/lion like in some definitions).
  • As per all fictional episodes, nominations can be from any source of fiction
  • Fictionalized versions of real horses count
