The Charger Horse is a fast and strong horse. It is a popular choice for riding in racehorses and was often used by knights and men-at-arms during the Middle Ages. Although its name doesn’t describe its origin, it can trace its name back to Middle English. Its name comes from the courser’s lion-like face and is derived from the word “charger”, which means “to charge”.
