The horse seen in level 9 actually has a backstory that is never explained in-game. According to Jordan Mechner's development document, the horse only springs to life when the king of the prince's homeland mounts it. Because the prince is the last of his own royal family line and rightful heir to the throne, the horse comes to life when he mounts it. The sorceress who led the massacre and desecration of the prince's homeland attempted to break the horse's spell but was unsuccessful.
