    I'm sitting here this morning watching Simon & Simon's season 3 episode called Bloodlines. It made me think about how many TV series (excluding westerns and Mr. Ed) had horse (or horse related) episodes. I think it's almost used as much as "the single mother syndrome"

    Here's a few I can think of:

    The Incredible Hulk Rainbow's End
    The Greatest American Hero Desperado
    The A-Team When You Comin Back Range Rider (suspiciously a lot like TGAH's Desperado ;)
    Rtptide It's A Vial Sort of Business
    Magnum PI Adelaide
    Simon & Simon Bloodlines
    Street Hawk The Arabian
    Murder She Wrote From The Horse's Mouth, Bloodlines, Dead Heat
    Mike Hammer, Private Eye Lucky In Love

    I'm not sure, but I think Simon & Simon's Bloodlines came before the Murder She Wrote episode of the same name. I'm sure there has to be a lot more I've forgotten, anyone else have any titles?

    I also think Manimal had a episode where Chase transformed into a horse (not on screen) but I haven't watched the series in 3 or 4 years.

    I'm surprised by the time Airwolf's 3rd season came around that had Hawke and company saving kids and nuns, that there wasn't a horse episode.

    DOM: String...we gotta save that mustang!
    HAWKE: Give me turbos!

    Bewitched had two episodes centered around horses.

    The Horse's Mouth (season 2, episode 25)
    Samantha turns a runaway horse into a woman in order to be able to communicate with it.

    Three Men and a Witch on a Horse
    (season 8, episode 13)
    Samantha helps out when Endora makes Darrin a gambler; Darrin bets on a horse bound to lose.

    LOL...the things one thinks about at 3:30AM.

    Thanks for all the horse sitcoms guys! After seeing the pics of Bewitched and Sanford & Son, I remember seeing those, but wasn't aware of any horse episodes of Ozzie & Harriet.

    As for The Untouchables, I just bought the complete series about a month ago and it's in my "watch" pile.

    I just remembered SHAZAM! had a horse episode Thou Shalt Not Kill

    Also, while not really a horse episode so to speak Captain Marvel saves a girl on a runaway horse in The Athlete

    2 Broke Girls featured Caroline's horse, Chestnut, in several episodes after she could no longer afford to board him at the stables and he came to live in the backyard of their Williamsburg apartment.

    Two of my favorite Bewitched episodes. Elizabeth’s love of the horses shines through.

    Who can forget the scene of Hawkeye, BJ and Radar trying to rope the skittish animal. Great ending when Radar realizes he can gift the horse to Colonel Potter (former cavalryman) by handing him the reins saying, "Here's the keys." Love Potter's "tiptoe through the tulips".

    CSI: Crime Scene Investigation featured a racing horse that killed its owner in S3E21. A bit darker tone for this thread, but it was a horse-centric episode.

    I don't recall the specifics but I'm pretty sure that CSI: Miami also dealt with horse racing although I don't recall the episode(s) or how much horses actually factored into the episode(s).

    - Walter.

    DUH...on me! How could I forget the Apes TV series!?!

    They had the episode called The Horse Race.

    Thanks to everyone for their horse picks!

    Glad to see the horse theme continuing in shows like the CSI franchise.

    THE TIME TUNNEL had a number of western-themed episodes, which naturally had horses in them. Robert Colbert was somewhat of a horseback-riding expert as he'd filmed a ton of westerns prior to this series. Here are three examples:

    "Night Of The Long Knives"
