Ponyta is a part of the Pokémon Red and Blue franchise. The fire-type Pokémon boasts horse-like anatomy and comes with a unique mane made of burning flames. It can’t run properly when it’s newly born. Its legs grow stronger as it races around with others of its kind.

Rapidash #078

Rapidash, a fire-typed Pokemon, has a similar appearance as Ponyta. The main difference between these two species is their size. Rapidash is significantly larger, and the horn protrudes from the head of the fire-type evolution. It evolves from Ponyta starting at level 40. This Pokémon can be seen galloping through fields at speeds of up to 150 mph, with its fiery mane fluttering in the wind.

Girafarig, Stantler, Arceus (Generation 2-4)

Generations 2 through 4 contain no horse Pokemon.

Girafarig #203 (the giraffe)

The brain in Girafarig’s rear head is pretty small. In response to smells and sounds, the rear head attacks. The rear head can suddenly lash out and bite when approached from behind.

Stantler #234 (the deer)

Stantler has magnificent antlers that were traded at high prices as works of art. As a result, this Pokémon was hunted close to extinction.

Arceus #493 (the vaguely horse-shaped god)

According to the Sinnoh legends, this Pokémon emerged from an egg and shaped everything in this world.

Blitzle, Zebstrika, Keldeo (Generation 5)

Generation 5 has three horse-like Pokemons:

Blitzle #522 and Zebstrika #523

Mudbray #749

Mudbray has been included in this list due to its resemblance to a donkey. In real life, donkeys are classified under the horse Family, Equidae. Loads weighing up to 50 times as much as their own body weight poses no issue for these ground-type Pokémons. Mudbray is skilled at making use of mud.

Mudsdale #750

This is a ground-type Pokemon. Believe it or not, Mudsdale is the evolution of Mudbray. Mud that hardens around a Mudsdale’s legs is harder than stone. It allows this Pokémon to scrap a truck with just a single kick. Mudsdale is a giant horse weighing 2,028 pounds, making it one of the biggest and heaviest pokemon.

Glastrier and Spectrier (Generation 7)

Glastrier and Spectrier are the most “horsey” species in the Kanto region. Both Pokemons are the steeds of Calyrex, the kingly Pokemon from Crown Island.

Glastrier #896

Glastrier emits intense cold from its hooves. It’s also a belligerent Pokémon—anything it wants takes by force.

Spectrier #897

Spectrier is a ghost-type pokemon. It probes its surroundings with all its senses save one—it doesn’t use its sense of sight. Spectrier’s kicks are said to separate the soul from the body.
