Mounted Combat

You can fight while riding on a horse, but there are some special rules to keep in mind.


A horse with a rider cannot attack. Your mount acts on your initiative count, and you direct how and where the horse moves. You move at the horse’s speed, but this uses the mount’s move action, not yours. Horses take up a 10-foot-square are (2 squares by 2 squares). Assume that you take up this space as well (so creatures can attack you if they can reach any of those squares).
