He has a speed of 30, while his Steed Ally a speed of 40. If the enemy is within 80 feet, he can use the Command an Animal action to direct his horse to use two of its actions close the distance, and his remaining two actions to Strike.
However, should the enemy fire arrows from 300 feet, he is better off without his horse:
- On foot: In the first 3 rounds he closes 3 times 30 feet, and in the foruth he Strides one last time before Striking twice
- Mounted: It takes 4 rounds just to get there
Did I misunderstand something? If not, is this intentional, or just an unfortunate edge case?
I know that with the Imposing Destrier feat from level 10 the horse is actually faster, but that is beside the point right now.
