Abstract: 

From the ancient times to the industrial developments, in the recent centuries, the horse has had impressive role in the life of human societies and has found specific value in each period of history; so as one can find its profound presence in the battlefields, banquets, in generosity and also in the far distant travels of man. It has played critical role in the fighting arena and had had close connection with the hero's victory in agility. With a little pondering, we can conclude that the quick and dynamic movement of the hoofs of the horse is related to the fate of the hero and is relatively tied with the consequence of war. All together the horse constitutes the three columns of war. In the epic texts of Iran, especially in the Shahnameh, it has frequently been alluded to this noble animal. The present article tries to reveal the presence and the role of this animal in heroic and epic poetry after the Shahnameh in works like: the Garshasbnameh, the Bahmannameh, the Kooshnameh, and the Faramarznameh.
