steed ({{{1}}})
  1. (archaic) A stallion, especially in the sense of mount.
    The studded bridle on a ragged bough
    Nimbly she fastens: -- O, how quick is love! --
    The steed is stalled up, and even now
    To tie the rider she begins to prove:
    Backward she push'd him, as she would be thrust,
    And govern'd him in strength, though not in lust. — Shakespeare, "Venus and Adonis".
