This question already has an answer here:

A previous question "Can Conjure Animals beasts be used as mounts?" suggests that a Druid could use a summoned animal as a mount. However, how might this work in combat? Would the conjured animal act and be controlled like any other mount?

Furthermore, could a conjured animal act as a mount for another party member? Per the spell (emphasis mine):

The summoned creatures are friendly to you and your companions. Roll initiative for the summoned creatures as a group, which has its own turns. They obey any verbal commands that you issue to them (no action required by you). If you don't issue any commands to them, they defend themselves from hostile creatures, but otherwise take no actions.

Could the summoned animal be controlled as a mount by the other party member? What if the druid commanded the conjured animal to obey the commands of the other party member, or ask as a mount? Do summoned fey spirits act like the animals form they take?

Follow the Standard Mounted Combat Rules

Given the relevance of the linked question on Conjure Animal beasts as mounts, it continues seamlessly into this one: The conjured animals acting as mounts would continue to require following the same Mounted Combat rules found in the PHB.

To further answer your more specific questions:

Could the summoned animal be controlled by the other party member? Yes, just like any other animal. The summoned beasts are friendly to you and your party as quoted in your question.

What if the druid commanded the conjured animal to obey the commands of the other party member? See the first question, this is unnecessary as the beast is friendly to all party members and will work as a normal mount.

Do summoned fey spirits act like the animals form they take? They are the animal for all intents and purposes, they're stuff is just that of Fey.
