The horses did not actually touch ground, but traveled through time and space supernaturally. They were able to thus traverse land and sea.

Roofdrak3Lord of the Dogs; not actually part of Moorcock's multiverse at all, but invented for TSR's Monster Manual for the game Advanced Dungeons and Dragons.
Sepiriz and the Ten4Members of an ancient, immortal race who at Elric's time have slept in a volcano for 10,000 years. They awakened for the crucial end of the world events in Stormbringer to give Elric aid and advice. They claim to be servants of Fate without ever explaining this very clearly. Perhaps they are in reality servant of the Balance? They always appear in the colors black and gold which is reminiscent of the Warrior in Jet and Gold who appears in other series. It is not clear whether there is any relationship.
Ship of Land and Sea(3)Used by Elric to find and defeat Yyrkoon in Dhoz-Kam. Obtained from Straasha.

Tower of Volodion GhasnadiakTower which for the protection of its residents was caused by the Lords of Law to teleport from plane to plane, staying in any one place anywhere from a few seconds to several hours.

DragonsTraditional, long-time allies of Melniboné. Used by Elric vs. Southern Raiders & vs. Theleb K'aarna.
Horn of FateAlso called Olifant or the Horn of Roland, a possible future incarnation of the Eternal Champion. Since it could only be created in a world dominated by Law, it is possible that the Horn was somehow related to the Runestaff. Stolen from its crypt by Elric who blew it three times, once to awaken the Dragons, once to summon the Lords of Law to the material plain and once to end his world.
Chaos ShieldUsed by Elric vs. Jagreen Lern et al. An item of immense power which can block any frontal assault from an agent of Chaos, acquired by Elric in Stormbringer at Mordaga's Lair.
Chaos FleetChaos in the form of Pyaray ruled the deep sea. Human sailors who drowned at sea were in some way reincarnated and added to this fleet. During the events of Stormbringer, the Cosmic Balance had tilted so far toward Chaos that the Fleet, which sailed not physically on water, but supernaturally, was able to appear on the surface of earth and sea. The force was allied with Jagreen Lern. Like other forces of Chaos, the fleet was apparently able to warp humans into twisted and ever changing shapes.
