Does he fall prone or is he simply placed in an adjacent square?

The rider falls prone in an adjacent square

From the DMG and the Rules Compendium[ddi]

Falling Prone: If the mount falls prone, the rider is dismounted and falls prone in an unoccupied space of the rider’s choice adjacent to the now-prone mount. However, if the mount is flying when it is knocked prone, it instead falls. The rider isn’t dismounted unless the mount lands and falls prone itself. A rider who is knocked prone can immediately make a saving throw. On a roll of 9 or lower, the rider is dismounted and falls prone in an unoccupied space of the rider’s choice adjacent to the mount. On a roll of 10 or higher, the rider is neither dismounted nor knocked prone. A rider who voluntarily drops prone falls prone in an unoccupied space of the rider’s choice adjacent to the mount.

  • \$\begingroup\$ No damage is called for under the rules as written (other than that required by the falling distance, in the case of a flying mount.) \$\endgroup\$ Sep 27 '12 at 0:55
  • \$\begingroup\$ Wasn't sure if the mount dying counted as falling prone. Thanks for the clarification! \$\endgroup\$
