Riding Mechanics

Learning Riding

When Riding is first learned from Mythander, the abilities Lope and Calm Horse are automatically learned. A horse icon also appears on the right-side menu, between the social window and settings. This grants access to the Mount Window.

Mount Window

The Mount Window provides statistics for an active horse, a button to mount or dismount, and slots to equip horse tack.

Horse Stats

Three categories of horse stats are available through the Mount Window. Additional information about a horse can be seen when it is in a stable.

Earning Riding XP

How do I get better at Riding?

By riding of course! And I have a technique for getting better fast: you should ride in lots of different places, and always ride near dangerous monster.

I should ride TOWARD dangerous monsters?

Just ride near enemies -- don't get so close that you get injured! Just get close enough for the horse to experience anxiety. Then you can practice overcoming that anxiety.

So I should just ride around monsters? Like, in a loop?

No, no! You can't get better if you just stay in the same area. You have to ride near different monsters in many different places! Explore all types of terrain, and dodge monsters everywhere you go.

That's how you get better at riding: keep exploring! Keep fleeing!

That sounds insane, but you're the riding expert.
