Good morning ... In the LOTR movie and the books, various warriors were able to ride their mounts and fight at the same time. I would be an excellent addition if we were able to do that in LOTRO. The Icon that shows up when you rent a horse could be used as the same one for folks that are riding their own horse, thereby freeing up the center blue-bar for combat related items such as bow-shooting. This is a suggestion/observation for the purposes of discussion and perhaps the game developers might take a look at the idea. Cheers and my best regards to all... Bill, Peterborough, Ont.
