Combat is treated just as it would should you be on foot, you would make a ride check to guide the mount as a free action and then make an attack at the end of your charge. If you are using a Lance you would double your damage at the end of the charge. I have included a bunch of text that, for the most part, is relevant below: Mounted Combat With a DC 5 ...

This is a great question. I would argue while the rules don't explicitly cover this, you could find some guidance in the rules. It would benefit you to look at some real-world examples. The one that comes to my mind is roping. The rider makes an attempt to 'rope' or 'hit' the animal with the rope, catching a leg The rider attempts to secure the rope on ...

As in mawimawi and Flotolk's answers, I'm not sure there are any clear rules here, but there are lots of things that we could easily make up. But there are several variable to consider that might hinder this one way or the other. First off, you cannot use a normal net, you must use a Snag Net. The normal net is thrown at the opponent but does not have a ...

I haven't found any rules on it, but I would treat it very much like a grapple check, but with you making automatic attacks, that are guaranteed to hit if the player moves. The initial roll would have to be made with your DEX modifier, since you are trying to entangle him with a thrown net. Every check after that would be made with your CMB, since it's just ...

There are no official rules for that, but as a GM, I definitely would allow it, since it makes up for a great story. First of all - as Molot described - there would be a continuous STR check if the net is held in hand. If the net is fixated on a saddle, then I might use a low ride check instead. I would take into account the speed of your mount per round as ...

Right now the only rules regarding riding is if a mount is moved against it's will, if you are knocked prone while riding or if your mount is knocked prone, you are required to make a DC 10 Dex check. (Pg. 198) Moving a mount against it's will could also include the rider doing something like trying to make a mount walk through a wall of fire, or perform an ...

If existing rules don't cover this to your satisfaction (I'm not very familiar with D&D), you could approach it from the perspective how it might work in real life in order create a useful ruling. I've got 15 years of real riding experience. A spooked mount that suddenly took off at full speed wouldn't unseat me, saddle or not, especially if I were ...

There are not rules for riding with a non-military saddle vs riding bareback, though that would be within the rights of the DM to rule as such (the rules are currently silent on the difference, and only provide an explanation that a military saddle provides advantage on checks to stay mounted). Dash is one of the normal action types for a nonintelligent ...
