COWBOY HORSES OF THE OLD WEST

Many of the heroes of the "old west" era of the USA's 19th century rode horses in their adventures. These horses tended to be fiercely loyal to their masters, able to understand simple commands, fast runners and capable of performing unusual feats such as chewing through ropes. Notable among these horses was Banshee, who wore the same phosphorescent dye as his master the Phantom Rider and the Black Rider's steed Satan, who doubled as Ichabod in his master's secret identity of Matthew Masters.
