Asfaloth is a fictional horse in The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien. It is the horse ridden by the elf who meets Strider and the Hobbits shortly before they arrive at Rivendell (Glorfindel in the book, Arwen in Peter Jackson's film version).

'Ride on! Ride on!' cried Glorfindel, and the loud and clear he called to the horse in the elf_tongue: noro lim, noro lim, Asfaloth!
