If a mount without a saddle dashes does the rider need a saving throw? Specifically if the mount is a player controlled dire wolf and another character hops on his back. The mounted combat rules are pretty slim and mention that... (PHB 155)
Saddles. A military saddle braces the rider, helping you keep your seat on an active mount in battle. It gives you advantage on any check you make to remain mounted. An exotic saddle is required for riding any aquatic or flying mount.
But what are these conditions that merit checks to remain mounted? Does a dash of 50' in 6 seconds knock a rider off?
I don't think there are very many more rules for 5e mounted combat at the moment, so maybe someone with knowledge of how this might have worked in editions past could answer with some of that info. I'm just looking for some experienced insight into how mounted mechanics might play out.
