Poster concept by Dom Rice of Queensland, Australia

Meher Baba referred to himself as the White Horse Avatar. Though he did not specifically cite the Vedic myth of India, Kalki, the tenth incarnation of Vishnu and final world saviour, is predicted to appear riding a white horse, or in the form of a white horse. (Dictionary of Hindu Lore and Legend by Anna L. Dallapiccola. Thames and Hudson, 2002)

In the Book of Revelation, the final book of the New Testament, Christ rides a white horse out of heaven at the head of the armies of heaven to judge and make war upon the earth. (Book of Revelation, Ch 19:11-6 (NIV)

Twelver Shī'a Islamic traditions envisage that the Mahdi will appear riding a white horse.
