From The Vault

It is interesting to note that horses have never been shown or mentioned in a Fallout game, other than in the rantings of Dane in Fo1. This indicates that horses did not survive the Great War in North America[1], although there is a possibility that they exist in other parts of the globe.

References

  1. Chris Avellone asked about whether horses survived the War in Fallout Bible 8: Nope. Some mules did (the poor mule killed by the raiders in F1), but not for long. Besides, I think that mule was a discrepancy.

"That's not a star cruiser. That's a horse. Horses don't fly."
Cindel Towani

Horses were domesticated animals used as mounts and beasts of burden on many inhabited worlds in the galaxy.

Horse was the vernacular name for the species used in Basic. The technical term used by scientists was equus. In Ewokese, the species was called "pulga." A small horse was called a "pony" in Basic and a "gaupa" in Ewokese.

An Ewok riding a gaupa rides to slow-down a spooked pulga on the run.

When Cindel Towani was befriended by Wicket after her family crashed on Endor, he showed her an Ewok-made pulga statue, which she identified as a horse. Apparently, at least one world visited by the Towani family in the Galactic Empire had horses.

The Ewoks mainly used small gaupas to ride, but also used large pulgas for heavier loads. In the quest to rescue the Towani parents, most of the Ewoks involved rode gaupas, while Cindel and Wicket traveled in a children-carrying basket aboard a full-sized pulga.

The Force-sensitive witches of Dathomir possessed beautiful black horses, which they sometimes rode instead of Dathomiri rancors. Some of the witches, notably Charal, possessed rings of mysterious (possibly Sith) origin with strange Force "magic" properties that allowed the witches to change the physical shapes of both themselves and their steeds.

Charal apparently brought her Dathomiri steed with her to the forest moon. To lure Cindel into a trap, she changed her own shape into a beautiful lady, and her horse into a white steed. Apparently, white horses were considered symbolic of purity and nobility in the Galactic Empire.

The Sanyassan Marauders under King Terak also used large horses as mounts. It is possible they brought these steeds with them to the forest moon, as Charal brought her own horse. The Marauders crashed on Endor almost 100 years before the Battle of Yavin, and the horses and ponies used by the Ewoks may well have been descended from Marauder-introduced stock.

Behind the scenes

George Lucas's Ewok movies featured numerous real, Earth animals, although it should be noted that so did The Phantom Menace, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi.

Note that many fans have incorrectly confused Endorian ponies with bordoks.

Charal tricking Cindel by turning her horse white seems to indicate that little Human girls, like those of Earth, enjoy bed-time fairy-tales of pretty princesses on white horses, and probably every little girl dreams of owning one. The Ewoks movies were more like traditional Earth fantasies than many Star Wars fans appreciate, but are still considered canon.

Many animals in the Star Wars galaxy resemble horses, but are not. These include four-eared equinoids from Cleroff's World, and numerous species of Naboo: gualaars, guarlaras, and gualamas.
