    GM in Bushido will allow you to ride a Lesser Hiryu but not a nightmare.

    In theory, the only way I can think of to ride a nightmare but not have any taming is to have taming first, mount the mare, and transfer the skill off to a soulstone? But even if that worked, as soon as you stepped off it wouldn't obey orders surely, and would quickly go wild and eat you? So basically nope, you'll need taming for a Nightmare I'm afraid.

    The preferred mount of many warriors is the swamp dragon, dressed in exceptional dragon barding

    The information you quote regarding nightmares is true, as far as it goes. If a tamer tells his mare to follow you, it will. But that is all it will do.

    Perhaps you're seeing folks ride black horses? They are rare mounts that don't require taming skill, but don't pack a punch like a nightmare.

    Like Petra said - you don't own the nightmare, its owner has just given it a command to follow, going by the example originally posted (which says nothing about riding or commanding, unless that's in a different part of the other page)

    Lino rides a nightmare and he has 0.0 taming...
    He USED to have taming...that's when we transfered the TB mare.
    He gave me right to command his mare...so i as an elder tamer can perfectly ask his mare to follow him (after he has fed it)

    It's just for show tho.
    The mare doesn't bond to him.
