The Legend of the Charger
There was once a brave Knight who set out on a quest to save his kingdom from an evil warlord. The warlord's castle gate was guarded by 60 of his fiercest warriors. The Knight asked the bravest of the King's men to help him break through the guard, but none would dare go help him for fear of their own demise. Determined, the Knight mounted his noble steed and made the journey alone. Once there, he realized that the guard had doubled, and there were now 120 warriors guarding the gate. Disappointed, the Knight knew that his chances of survival were slim, so he pulled his horse to turn an go. The Horse, however, refused. Instead of retreating, by his own will, the horse bounded forward, right into the midst of the enemy. Rearing back and kicking, biting, and bucking, the mighty steed began ferociously destroying the warriors who were coming at him with everything they had. The Knight had only to hold on until the 120th man fell. Exhausted, the stallion chauffeured his Knight to the front gate, where he entered and conquered the warlord, bringing peace to his kingdom.
At a ceremony in his honor, the Knight proclaimed the bravery of his horse. Where all other Knights had turned in fear, his Horse charged forward into battle, displaying great courage, no matter what the odds were against him. His ferocity and determination were honored by giving him the new name, Charger. From that time on, all Knights' battle horses who were trained to exhibit his bravery were known as Chargers.
