Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Back in the days before any kind of engines existed, horses provided man's primary method of transportation. This is reflected in Hollywood portrayals of period pieces such as Medieval European Fantasies or works that take place in The Wild West.
Given the importance of cavalry in the history of some of the world's greatest empires, horses were often a sign of status; poor people could not afford a horse. Moreover, the color of the steed's hair coat serves to emphasize one character who is in a higher standing than the rest: the White Stallion is a type of Cool Horse which serves as a ride for a character usually in a position of leadership or seniority. Chances are if the work has a large group of characters who routinely ride horseback, only one of them will be riding a white horse, usually The Leader, the Knight in Shining Armor, and royalty. Sometimes it has similar implications as white-haired people.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })This is Older Than Feudalism, going back to The Bible. Several Eurasian religions and mythologies have associated white horses with the sun, fertility, divinity, and other such themes, so they are often the symbol of an All-Loving Hero or The Chosen One. Light Is Good and all that. The rider might be exhibiting Horseback Heroism.
This trope is justified in that true white horses are fairly rare, and as such, they're more expensive. (That said, a true "white horse" is one with pink skin; most of the "white" horses one sees in fiction, being "white with dark points," are technically "white-haired grays".) Adding to the rarity, white horses are sometimes born with a fatal birth defect called Lethal White Syndrome that affects the digestive tract. White foals must always be closely watched because of this.

In the Fire Emblem series, white horses are common mounts for the Paladin class, the advanced version of the Cavalier class. Some lords like Sigurd and his son Seliph, Eliwood, and Ephraim and Eirika receive a white horse upon class changing to Knight Lord (for the former three) and Great Lord (for the latter two).

Altivo from The Road to El Dorado, who belongs to Miguel, a thief. Justified in that he originally belonged to explorer Hernan Cortes. Taking into account that Miguel is one of the two protagonists of the film and certainly heroic, while Hernan Cortes serves as an antagonist, the trope is still played straight, although it zigzags a little in the beginning.

Disney has a fair share of white/grey-white stallions, most of which get badass names. Among them are:
Aladdin: Prince Achmed's horse. And when the Genie briefly turns Abu into a horse, he's a white stallion. Subverted, in that the Genie decides the horse isn't impressive enough and ends up turning Abu into an elephant instead.
Enchanted: Destiny, Prince Edward's horse.
Hercules: Pegasus. An upgraded/exaggerated example in that he of course has wings he can fly with, semi-divine powers, and a cool blue mane.
The Hunchback of Notre Dame: Achilles, Captain Phoebus' horse.
Mulan: Captain Li Shang's horse.
Sleeping Beauty: Samson, horse of Prince Philip.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs: The Prince's horse.
Tangled: Maximus, originally the horse of the captain of the guard, now friends with Flynn Rider... and captain of the guard. He's one badass horse.

In Westerns, particularly in the black-and-white era, good guys typically ride white horses and wear white hats. Apart from reinforcing the Light Is Good trope, this helps the viewer to identify our hero in long shots and fight scenes.

In Romance of the Three Kingdoms Gongsun Zan is known as the White Horse General for leading an elite cavalry unit composed of white horses, which he does so because other tribes consider them sacred and would rather flee from them. Zhao Yun, who once served under him, is often depicted riding a white horse for other symbolic reasons.

Subverted in Jessica Jones (2015). When standing on the edge of a building, Jessica has an Imagine Spot where she uses her superpowers to float harmlessly to the ground, then ride off on a white horse, free of Kilgrave's Mind Control. The horse then disappears and we return to her on the ledge, contemplating a more permanent solution.

The Lord of the Rings:
Gandalf the White appropriately rides a very particular white horse named Shadowfax. In the books Shadowfax is described as being gray or even silver and shining; The Film of the Book goes for a more straightforward white.
The book does have several horses that are explicitly described as white. Glorfindel's horse Asfaloth is one, to better contrast the steeds of the Black Riders. The banner of Rohan shows a white horse on green, being a depiction of Shadowfax's ancestor Felaróf who carried the first King of Rohan into battle. Finally Théoden's horse is named Snowmane and while the book never says the rest of him is white, too; the film chooses to make him so.

A step of a side quest in Red Dead Redemption has you find, catch, and break a white stallion "like the real cowboys ride" to give to a man in exchange for an indentured servant's freedom. Sounds like a pain, but they're relatively common in the area the quest is in and you may even be riding one yourself.
The prequel, Red Dead Redemption II, set during the Van der Linde gang's heyday, has gang leader Dutch ride an all-white Arabian stallion named The Count (the game describes him as albino even though albinism does not exist in real horses). The player can also find, tame, and ride a white Arabian of their own, though this one is actually a light gray (with a gray muzzle and dark eyes unlike The Count's pink skin and blue eyes) and will often spawn as female at first. It's not the only white/light gray horse players can ride, but it's the closest one to exemplifying this trope.
In the online multiplayer mode, player characters can ride the above Arabian for a premium price, and a white/light gray Kladruber horse is an online-exclusive reward for taking the Trader role.

A Song of Ice and Fire. Daenerys Targaryen receives a magnificent silver horse (though it's a mare, not a stallion) as a wedding gift from her husband Khal Drogo, ruler of a nomadic Proud Warrior Race called the Dothraki. As Dothraki don't name their horses, she simply calls it her silver. In the Game of Thrones TV adaption, Silver dies at the beginning of Season 2 while crossing the Red Waste, though the book counterpart is still alive.
Ser Loras Tyrell also rides a white horse when jousting Gregor Clegane. This trope is subverted on several levels: his horse is a mare, and specifically chosen because it was in heat so as to distract his opponent's stallion and throw him off his game, establishing Loras as a cheater rather than a hero.

In the Frontier Circus episode "Lippizan", Ben sets out to acquire a Cool Horse for the circus's blind equestrian after he accidentally causes the death of her Lippizan stallion. He eventually acquires, breaks, and trains a white stallion named King that is half-Lippizan, half-Arabian wild stallion. At the end of the episode, King single-handedly fights off a wolf pack.

Used on several occasions in Game of Thrones to make people look more awesome, presumably in a deliberate evocation of this trope. For instance, as part of his regal image, King Renly Baratheon rides one in "Garden of Bones." As befitting a Knight in Shining Armor, Brienne rides a white horse in "Garden of Bones." Renly's lover Ser Loras Tyrell will later charge into battle in "Blackwater" on Renly's white horse to better enhance the illusion that he is King Renly's ghost. Other characters such as Lord Tywin and Yara Greyjoy ride white horses when making a Big Entrance (though Reality Ensues when the former's horse dumps a load of manure outside the throne room). Likewise Daenerys Targaryen, after losing the white horse she was given as a wedding gift while crossing the Red Waste, acquires another after sacking her first city, marking her new role as The Conqueror. Arya gets one after executing her friend's murderer. On her new horse, she creates a stark contrast with the Hound on his black courser, Stranger.
Used for Rule of Symbolism when Arya Stark comes across a pale white horse in the midst of the dragon-scorched carnage of Kings Landing and rides off on it.

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic has several white ponies in positions of power.
Princess Celestia, a white-coated Winged Unicorn God-Princess of the sun, as mentioned in the description.
There's also Rarity, a white unicorn mare with upper-class ambitions.
Prince Blueblood, a white unicorn who currently is the page image for Prince Charmless.
Shining Armor, Twilight's brother, Captain of the Royal Guard and prince-by-marriage, is a large white unicorn stallion. So he combines the knight, the prince, the shining armor, and the tall white stallion in one entity.
Fancy Pants, who is considered to be the most important pony in the social circles of Canterlot.

The prequel, Red Dead Redemption II, set during the Van der Linde gang's heyday, has gang leader Dutch ride an all-white Arabian stallion named The Count (the game describes him as albino even though albinism does not exist in real horses). The player can also find, tame, and ride a white Arabian of their own, though this one is actually a light gray (with a gray muzzle and dark eyes unlike The Count's pink skin and blue eyes) and will often spawn as female at first. It's not the only white/light gray horse players can ride, but it's the closest one to exemplifying this trope.
In the online multiplayer mode, player characters can ride the above Arabian for a premium price, and a white/light gray Kladruber horse is an online-exclusive reward for taking the Trader role.

In the Chronicles of the Kencyrath series, heroine Jame has two white mounts. Bel-tairi is a Whinno-hir mare she inherited from her great-grandmother; an intelligent, nigh-immortal beast, dainty of stature, sure-footed and dependable. She's Jame's mount for regular travel. Death's-head, however, is what Jame rides into battle; he is a white (albino) rathorn—an armored, carnivorous unicorn. Both are quite symbolic.
