- This article concerns the actual riding skill. For more details on its use, see Mounts and Travelling.
- This skill is required to ride any permanent mount, increasing the player's movement speed to greater than 60%.
- By acquiring this trait you can purchase any of the permanent mounts skills also available in the LOTRO Store. Skill is auto-applied upon acquisition.
- VIP players can acquire the riding skill at level 20 without expending any LOTRO Points by completing the quest, Proving Your Quality, from Éogar, son of Hadorgar, Horse-master, at the Hengstacer Farm in northern Bree-fields (the small black horse near the top of the large Map of Bree-Land); or from the store after completing the Introduction by expending LOTRO Points (LP).
