A pony acquired by Frodo Baggins in Minas Tirith, whose name 'Strider' came from Aragorn's own nickname in the northern lands. Frodo's pony was well travelled indeed: his master rode him back from Minas Tirith to the Shire after the War of the Ring, and two years later he carried his master westwards to the Grey Havens on the coast of the Great Sea.
