If you are mounted and are flying, such as under the affects of a fly spell, does dismounting take a move action still?
The ride skill seems silent on this, specifically on what actually makes this be a move action (whether it's an increment of time vs avoiding falling off).
The only hint to me is potentially the following quote which states that bareback riding is a ride penalty which could potentially speak to the fact that bareback (fast) dismounting and saddled (fast) dismounting take the same amount of time and the former is just harder to do.
If you are riding bareback, you take a -5 penalty on Ride checks.
I had originally assumed that there may be additional effort to 'disentangle' yourself from a saddled mount but there's no ruling to this I see nor do I have any real life knowledge of riding, so that quote might be a red herring anyway.
Anyone know of additional rules clarifies or examples that might answer this Q?
