Items that are magical, but in a way that isn't really useful.

Pic Related.

For Example:

Wand of Killing Yourself (Duh)
Ring of Optimism (Can't be removed, but you're optimistic about that)
Hat of Reduced Size (Reduces your height by one inch)
Dragon Belch Belt (You burp fire. You have no resistance to said fire, but it's not a lot of fire.)
Boots of Pessimism (Can be removed, but you don't think you should try)
Knife of Delayed Injury (Anyone stabbed will have the wound appear twelve minutes later. Operates normally on inanimate objects.)
Invisible Training Knife (Invisible to everyone else, but about as sharp as a bowling ball.)

Are you me, OP? My coworkers and I used to discuss "Relativistic Time Wounds" that functioned exactly like that. There was also the inverse where the victim of the attack would get the wound ten minutes before the attack.

Wand of Killing Youreslf could actually be used for some pretty interesting shit.
For example, if you're trying to take down an evil magical cult that has a following of apprentices trying to learn the dark arts and you have multiple Wands of Killing Yourself at hand, then all you have to do is disguise yourself as one of the teachers and hand out the wands to the apprentices and then have them all try to imitate you using a spell to create a mass-suicide.
The best part is that you can create a conflict between the evil magical cult and some other evil faction to make them kill eachother in the process by just pinning it down on them instead as a decleration of war.

Cats are predators, you know. That's why it's important to them that they don't smell of anything. Even of humans. That's why your cat won't shit in the same place twice and will lick itself clean every time you touch it. Horses are not predators, they don't need to care about such trifles. And horses are actually very smart. They can be trained, they can feel the people's attitude to them, they can find their way home when lost. Sheep, for example, are a lot more stupid. I know that shepherds add a goat to a flock of sheep to lead them sometimes, because otherwise sheep can just be lost. Sheep are merely food and wool. Horses are much more than this.

One of the classic useless items is a Adapting Belt of Protection (I think it had a different name, but whatever). The idea is that the Belt is meant to make you immune to anything that attacks you, but it doesn't work quite right -- what this means is that the belt makes you immune to one thing, whatever killed the last wearer. If you were killed by a Fire Giant? Then the next guy who wears the belt is immune to Fire Giants. Additionally, the belt doesn't communicate this to you in any way.

Some new ones to go with:
The TimeStopwatch: A fine golden stopwatch that when activated will stop time for a full minute. Unfortunately, this stops all time everywhere for the full minute, so to all observers (including the user) it appears that literally nothing has happened.

The (Misadjusted) Ring of Teleport: a Teleportation ring that was incorrectly calibrated. No matter how near or far you go, it always puts you 2 feet left and 10 feet higher up than what you want. No amount of practice or familiarity can correct this.

The Boots of Gently Moseying: Fine Leather Boots, that make the wearer walk in a calm, relaxed fashion, no matter their intent or urgency.

The Lute of Spectacular Enthrallment: A magic lute that makes anyone who hears it madly obsessed with it. While at first it's pretty great for distracting crowds -- the problem comes from when you stop playing it. Anyone or anything that was enthralled will become agitated when the music stops, and they'll quickly become violent if the player does not resume. Most musicians are faced with decided if they'd prefer to be beaten to death by the crowd, or if they'd rather die of exhaustion from playing.

You are thinking about modern thoroughbred racing horses. They have been selectively bred by humans for speed at the exclusion of all others. It makes them very fragile and ruins their healing (there have been cases where the owners of a thoroughbred spent MILLIONS of dollars to get the best possible treatment for it, still died from a broken leg)

Work horses and war horses are both significantly more durable.

Also, worth noting that the horse is basically a human creation. The reason chariots were a thing was because ancient "horses" were basically ponies and couldn't properly carry an armored dude. So he rode in an open chariot dragged on wheels by two horses. It took hundreds of years of selective breeding to get a horse large enough for human to ride.
