Warhorse is defined as an experienced person who has been through many battles; someone who has given long service. 

A horse is a vain thing for safety - Even the horse, with all his fleetness, is no sure means of escape from danger: the lion or the tiger can overtake him or he may stumble, fall, and destroy his rider.
Psalm 33:17

Man, as complex a creature as he may be, with the ability to create, invent and aspire is not infallible or incapable of falling short of his promise. But we are a people, especially, if we call ourselves "Christian" with high expectations. What amazes me is why we would expect perfection from our fellow man when we, ourselves, are going to fail on a daily basis. And yes, there are degrees and levels of failure and intentions but we tend to exclude the 'human factor,' especially when that person is in leadership or their name carries a certain title. 
The warhorse, though wise through experience and tested by time, is still a horse and to place our complete trust in his reputation of strength and swiftness would be a fallacy at best.
