Mounts are almost essential for crossing the vast expanses of Tamriel in good time. They have an additional sprint function that further decreases travel time. Several mounts are available for purchase with in-game gold or Crowns. Mounts can be horses, guar, kagouti, senche, camels, wolves, bears, elks, or Dwarven spiders. In addition to their general species, some of them also are daedra or undead.
You can train your character's Riding Skill every 20 hours at stablemasters, or as often as you like via the Crown Store, to receive a bonus to speed, inventory space, or stamina (up to the maximum of 60 points in each stat). The bonuses are permanent and cumulative, and are bound to the character rather than the mount, making the different mount types cosmetic. Three visual upgrades can also be applied to your mounts by increasing these stats. For more information, see Riding Skill.
Mounts cannot die, but you will be forced to dismount if they receive enough damage. To change mounts, bring up your Collections window, click Mounts, and select the one you wish to use. Mounts have a default name when bought, and this can also be changed in Collections. Mounts can jump, but only while moving. Attempting to jump without moving will cause the mount to perform an animation, as detailed in the list below.
Horses can rear on their hind legs and neigh.

Its default name is "Soul-Eater", and it has unique sound effects.
- Since nearly all Dwemer sites are in northeast Tamriel, where the only large feline is the sabre cat, scholars of Dwarven civilization have long wondered why they chose to make animunculi mounts that resemble the senche-tigers of the south. It's a mystery!
Ebon Dwarven Senche Mount

Frost Draugr Senche
- What were Senche-Tiger Mounts doing in ancient Skyrim, and why were their half-frozen bodies mummified beside the Draugr in certain dark Nord catacombs? And why are they rising now, imbued with animating frost magic? The answers are as yet unknown.
Nightfall Sabre Cat
- The Reachmen of the upper Karth valley, who train them as mounts, swear that the Nightfall variant is sacred to the Daedric Prince Nocturnal.
- The Pride-King Lions are the top predators on the savannahs of northern Elsweyr. No one but the Khajiiti, with their feline intuitions, could have persuaded these proud beasts to serve as mounts. Are you strong-willed enough to control one of these majestic beasts?
Sabre Cat Mount
- The Sabre Cats of northern Tamriel are possibly even more powerful than their southern Senche cousins. They are certainly more feral and difficult to train. That didn't stop the Nords of Falkreath from breaking and training them to serve as mounts!
The Sabre Cat Mount was originally available from the Crown Store for 2,500 . It has pale fur and golden armor. This mount is not affected by Riding Skills visuals, meaning the armor cannot be hidden and there are no upgrades. Its default name is "Fangs".
- A mount bred for bearing an armed warrior while slinking through the steamy jungles of Pellitine.
- These fierce and powerful mounts hail from the broad savannahs of Anequina.

Guar can roar.
Banded Guar Charger
- A breed of guar bred for cavalry use, able to carry an armored warrior into battle.
- Guar vamidiums, or Dwarven Guar Mounts, are most often associated with Dwemer sites in Morrowind—as might be expected, since that's where guar are most in use as pack and riding animals.
Flame Atronach Guar Mount
- Flame Atronachs are summoned from the Oblivion plane of Infernace, a realm so hot that molten rock flows across its surface, and its Daedra are creatures of living flame. Summoned to Tamriel, such atronachs can be given almost any shape, even a Guar!.

Pale Velothi Guar
- This stalwart mount comes from the ashlands downwind of the volcanoes of the Velothi Mountains, and is well adapted to surviving under the harshest of conditions.
- Blending in with the shifting gray ash clouds on the slopes of Red Mountain, the Shadowghost Guar are the only known nocturnal breed of the species, and thus are rarely seen, even by the native Dark Elves.
- The naked, grisly smile on the broad skull of the Skeletal Guar may be enough to send lesser opponents fleeing in terror when you ride into battle on its creaking, bony frame. The Worm Cult, of course, will just be jealous.
The Skeletal Guar is available in the Reaper's Harvest Crown Crates as an Apex-level reward. Its default name is "Grinly".
- This colorful guar was once thought to be poisonous by many, but found to be relatively harmless by an adventuresome rider. Caution! Patience is needed to bring this obstinate mount to heed.

- Dwarven Camels are most often found among the ruins of the desert-dwelling Rourken clan of the Dwemer, who left northeast Tamriel and traveled west to found cities in the remote back-country of Hammerfell.
Flame Atronach Camel
- When Peregrine Direnni passed her Master Conjurer test by summoning the first-ever Flame Atronach Camel, her mentor COrvus gav her high parks but was heard to comment, "Now you're just showing off."
- This is the stoic, hard-working beast that riders in the wastes of Hammerfell count on to survive. And if things come to a fight, it's just plain mean.
- The Redguard hatred of necromancy means undead creatures are rare in Hammerfell - which will make you all the more special when you clatter in to the oasis on the back of a terrifying Skeletal Camel!
Storm Atronach Camel
- The Altmer wizard Corvus Direnni astounded High King Ar-Azal of Hammerfell by conjuring a Storm Atronach that assumed the form of a horse—but when Ar-Azal tried to stump him by commanding he summon a Storm Atronach Camel, Corvus Direnni instantly did so!

- The Ice Wolf of the far north can grow to tremendous size - which is probably why the Nords of Hjaalmarch decided to ride them. Domesticating giant Ice Wolves wasn't an easy task, but it's just the kind of challenge a Nord loves.
- In the valley of the Karth, the Reach clans have domesticated the fierce ice wolves, which they have bred for size and endurance to serve as mounts. A raiding party of Reach warriors riding Karthwolf Chargers is a fearsome sight indeed.
The Karthwolf Charger was previously available in the Crown Store for 2,200 . Its default name is "Ice Loper".

The Wild Hunt Wolf Mount is available as an Apex-level reward in the Wild Hunt Crown Crate. Its default name is "Lobo Leaf". It leaves behind green pawprints, and small flowers briefly bloom where it stands still.
Kagouti can roar, similar to guar.
- The Hearthfire Kagouti appears to be a sort of magical hybrid, a wizard's experimental melding of a carnivorous reptile and a flame atronach. The fact that they were first sighted in the Telvanni Grazelands lends this theory some credence.
- Wheeled constructs and fabricants do just fine in most regions of the Clockwork City, but for traversing rough synthetic terrain, Seht's Apostles prefer the tough and capable Kagouti Fabricant mount.
- Domesticating the savage Kagouti to serve as a mount is a recent endeavor, and to be frank, more than a little experimental. Do you have what it takes to stay in the saddle on one of these fierce, bipedal reptiles?
The Kagouti Mount was previously available from the Crown Store for 2,500 . Its default name is "Touti Frouti".

A Great Elk Mount is available from the Crown Store for 4,500 . Its default name is "Chandelier". Unlike other mounts, it has no visual upgrades for Riding Skill.
Chroma-Blue Dwarven Spider Mount
- Rarest of all Dwarven Spider vamidiums are those powered by gems that emit a gold blue light, said to reflected the frigid stolen soul of the Dwemer engineer trapped within it.

Dwarven Spider Mount
- Of all the Dwemer animunculi, the Dwarven Spider is perhaps the most familiar and iconic! This versatile construct comes in several variations, and it should come as no surprise that one of them is a vamidium, or mechanical mount. Clankin'!
The Dwarven Spider Mount was available for a limited time in the Crown Store for 3,000 . It can rise up on its hind legs and turn on a red light. Its default name is "Skitters".
